Palm Sunday Sermon

Jesus:  Substitute
Mark 15.1-39

Everyone is Guilty.
  • Original Sin:  we inherit the proclivity to sin from our first parents.
  • Responsibility:  we stand justly condemned before God.

Sin is Ugly.
  • Jesus’ death is so painful because sin is so heinous.
  • It serves as a reminder that we cannot play with sin.

Propitiation is God’s Plan.
  • Jesus serves as our substitute, taking the blow of God’s wrath against sin.
  • In doing so, Jesus defends God’s righteousness as He pays for our sin.

Separation is Shattered.
  • Everyone who puts their confidence in Jesus’ sacrifice on our behalf is united with God.
  • Jesus demonstrates God’s love for us at the cross and the length to which He will go to end the separation.
