“Sin is dealt with by the One who was a strong, conquering King and intentionally laid down His life as a sacrifice to atone – make up for and put right with regards to – the sin of His people.
And in doing this, He takes from us our sin – our weakness, our failure, our “ugly”, our ashes – and gives to us His strength, His success, His beauty, His glory!
You can’t put on Christ’s righteousness over your wreckage.
You have to give Him your “ugly” in order to receive His “beauty”.”
From the sermon, The Coming King on Isaiah 61, by Chris Gensheer, Lead Pastor of Christ Presbyterian Church, Mansfield, TX.
