Colossians 2:14 (DARBY), “Nailed it to the cross”.

Some time ago, I watched the film by Mel Gibson called, “The Passion of the Christ”. Towards the end of the film, you see Jesus being nailed to the cross. Mel Gibson played the man who drove one of the nails into the hands of Jesus (played by the actor Jim Carviezel.) When Mel Gibson was asked why he wanted to play that part, he replied, “Because, it was my sin, that put Jesus there, it was my sin that is nailed to the cross.” 

Jesus took away not one man’s sin, but he sins of the world. So whose sin was it that put Jesus on the cross? It was your sin and mine, and also the whole world. But when Jesus was on the cross you and I were on His mind. Jesus took away our sin, by nailing it to the cross. 

My friend, we need not live in shame, nor condemnation because of our sin, it has been taken away, Jesus nailed it to the cross! It is only by accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior than we, by faith receive and live in that promise of God. 

This old gospel song says it so well… 

‘O’ the bliss of this glorious thought,

My sin not in part, but the whole,

Is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more,

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord ‘O’ my soul. 

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
