Cornerstone

 

 
One of my most memorable services at LCPC was a Maundy Service.  Each person was invited to  write on a piece a paper something we sought forgiveness and then nailed our paper to the cross. 
 
The power and weight of my sin being transferred and bore by Jesus came alive that night as I held the hammer in my hand and struck the nail head deeper and deeper into the cross until the nail held my sin.
 
I walked away in silence, deep in thought of the event that took place 2,000 years ago. As I tried to recall what I wrote, I could not remember.  When I closed my eyes and try to envision my sin on the paper, my paper was blank, tears rolled down my cheek. This is truly what Jesus did for us. 
 
Isaiah 1:18 “Though your sins are as scarlet, They will be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They will be like wool.” Jesus took our fall, so that our sins could be cleansed.
