I usually don't give up anything or add something during Lent. However, I have the last two years chosen a book that will help me reflect on Jesus' death on the cross. This year, I am reading Scandalous by D. A. Carson. Here are some quotes from my reading last week:
No, the hardest truth to get across to this generation is what the Bible says about sin.
All people without distinction are both condemned and savable. . .
The cross is not only the demonstration of God's love; it is the demonstration of God's justice.
Go to the cross. It is where wrath and mercy meet. Holiness and peace kiss each other. The climax of redemptive history is the cross.
