Preaching the Cross to Wounded People – Christian Today article

Jesus experienced severe, physical pain. It’s easy to gloss over this, but no other religion has a god who suffers physically. Indeed, that would be a picture of weakness, not power – why would anyone want to worship a suffering God?

Well, I would.

Just preaching that ‘Jesus died on the cross because of our sin’ can be dangerous: here are three other aspects of the cross that wounded people need to hear.

Do check it out and share!

P.S. I’ve been terrible at writing regular newsletters, but I’m planning on sending one in the next few days.

    I was so relieved when you were invited to contribute to the licc site and am grateful to be in touch with your mailings to be able to read your reflections on what it means to suffer and experience God’s love in difficult circumstances. I thank God for your present experience together with your background as a lecturer in theology gives credence to what you say and hope that others who do not have that experience of weakness will really hear what you are saying.
    Thank you.
    I am sorry that you are suffering so much … yet thankful that you are using your experience of suffering to support others.
    God bless you
