Resurrection Letters: IV

Continuing on with Andrew Peterson's meditations in this season of Lent leading up to Christ's resurrection, I have to say today's letter is especially sweet.
Taste for yourself.



Our long-suffering Servant remembered me while He endured the insults, the scourging, and the searing pain of separation as His Father's gaze saw my sin upon Christ. His perfect life was viewed as a curse for me.

And He remembered you.

"God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." 2 Corinthians 5:21 

"Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.”  Galatians 3:13

"...the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1: 7b-9
