“So I think it is pretty clear that somebody has to die. Somebody has to die for the way we treat our black brothers and sisters in this country. Somebody has to die for the way we treat our brothers and sisters in uniform. Someone has to die for the way we treat the elderly, the way we slaughter the unborn, and the way we despise and marginalize the disabled. Someone has to die for our hatred, someone has to die for our selfishness, someone has to die for our envy, someone has to die for our bitterness. That is the bad news, and it does seem to be most of the news right now.
But there is good news too – The Good News.
Someone did. Someone took all this sin we see – the only person in the history of our world who did not deserve to die – and he died with our sin in His arms. He took it to the grave and He left it there when He returned.
There is only one way out of this kind of tangle of resentment and hate and bitterness and it is through the grave, in the arms of Christ.
Christians, there has never been a better time to share this good news. Lay down your grievances, lay down your accusations, lay down your hashtag fights, lay down your drama. Share the good news of salvation to a world that needs it more than anything.”
