Here are a few of my favorite mind-blowing, heart-stopping, worship-inducing words from CJ Mahaney’s sermon, “The Scream of the Damned.”
“This scream should have been your scream, but instead He took upon Himself the wrath that we deserve. He screamed the scream of the damned for us so that we might sing of His grace throughout all eternity. And the singing that will take place in eternity has broken into the present and we’ve already gotten started.”
And here’s Mahaney on Mark 15:31-32:
“They mocked him as God’s appointed savior… These words of ridicule, these scornful words actually revealed a profound truth. You see, if he was to save others, he could NOT save himself from suffering divine punishment for sin. Precisely because he refused to save himself, he was ABLE to save others…. They said they would have believed he was the son of God had he come down from the cross. We believe he was the son of God because he stayed up.”
Hallelujah! Thank you Jesus! I am utterly overcome with brokenness and thankfulness for what you endured to save sinful man. Soli Deo Gloria!
