Pleasing God, Making Disciples of Jesus Christ

The Cross of Christ: God’s Pulpit Declaring His Love

And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, 14 by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. 15 He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.  Colossians 2:13-15
