TITLE: The Shadow of the Cross
Scripture: Psalm 130
I. THE CROSS CASTS ITS SHADOW
Six lessons the shadow of the cross teaches us:
- (Who we are).
- (What we need).
- (Who God is).
- (What God offers us).
- (How we should live).
- (Hope and courage) is ours for the asking.
From Journey to the Cross by Paul David Tripp
“Never perfect, but perfectly forgiven…This is life as we know it forgiven and free, life as we know it more abundantly” Petra song
II. THE CROSS OFFERS ITS RELIEF
Thoughts from Psalm 130:
1. One of the benefits of the cross is that it meets us (in the depths). See Ps.69:1-2
2. (Forgiveness of sin).
“Yahweh! The Lord! The God of compassion and mercy! I am slow to anger and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness. I lavish unfailing love to a thousand generations. I forgive iniquity, rebellion, and sin.” Ex. 34: 6-7a (NLT)
