Words on Wednesday - Readying to Preach on Sunday

Thinking a lot about the cross in light of my sermon this coming Sunday.  It's always good to think about the cross, but in particular on Palm Sunday I talk about the penal substitution of Jesus, His propitiation for us.  Consider this quote:

"His fine, sensitive membrane of the soul had in nowise been scorched by the fire of iniquity.  No sin. He was perfectly pure and healthy.  No power had been blasted by the lightning of passion.  No nerve had been atrophied by the wasting blight of criminal neglect.  The entire surface of His life was as finely sensitive as the fair, healthy skin of a little child." ~J. H. Jowett as quoted in Dan DeHaan, The God You can Know
