Forgiven, Accepted, Redeemed, Reconciled - Thank You Jesus!!

I am forgiven, because You were forsaken.
I am accepted, because You were abolished
I am called, because You were condemned
I am redeemed, because You were reviled.
I am reconciled, because You were run down into the ground.

May we never forget the repugnance of our sin, and what our sin did to Him.  May the cross be the never ending praise of our ultimate praise song.  May He be worthy of all our worship and praise from this time forth and forevermore.  

"Betrayed by Judas, denied by Peter, abandoned by the eleven, forsaken by God. Darkness, you get three hours. Then you die."

- John Piper
