Sunday Sermon Quotes: Worship and the Cross

“Christ is to us just what his cross is. All that Christ was in heaven or on earth was put into what he did there…You do not understand Christ till you understand his cross.” P.T Forsyth

“The closed scroll indicates the plan of God unrevealed and unexecuted. If that scroll remains sealed God's purposes are not realized; His plan is not carried out. To open that scroll by breaking the seals means not merely to reveal but to carry out God's plan.” William Hendriksen

“Here we see that the key to the truth, all the truth, about the kingdom of God is Jesus Christ in his life, death, and resurrection…John illuminates the central paradox of the gospel. The victory of God was the humiliation and death of his Son. The Lion assumes the meekness of the Lamb and dies to overcome."  Graeme Goldsworthy
