Christ Became A Curse

There are two common reasons people take lightly, or fail to recognize the glory of what Jesus did for us on the cross. They do not comprehend  just how holy God is on one hand, or just how sinful we are on the other. If God is not really holy and we are not really sinful, then Jesus did […]
