April 23, 2014 The Fear of the Lord, His Mercy! JD Farag Easter sermon
Barrabas and the Lord a choice to make by the crowds. In choosing the wrong one they made the right choice for our redemption.
The irony is that Jesus took this vile murderer’s place at the cross and died for his sins. What a type of lesson for all of us who think we are better than Barrabas in comparison. Do we deserve the cross for the payment of our sins, yes we do. Our sins offend a Holy God as much as Barraba’s did. Thank heaven for His love and mercy.
