Key Words of the Christian Life
When Leslie Lynch King, Jr. died earlier this week, it made headlines around the world. Commentators talked about his legacy, and in the United States flags were lowed to half-staff in his honor.

When we say Redeemer, we remember what it cost him to save us. Redeemer is the name of Christ on the cross. We remember not only that he gave us salvation, but that he paid a mighty price for it.
The Bible says that God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself and he has given to us the message and the ministry of reconciliation. The followers of Jesus Christ are to be people who bring reconciliation into the world.
God’s Son has made propitiation. He has turned away the wrath of God. He shed his blood and what was a place of judgment is now a mercy seat for people like you and like me. I urge you right now in the name of Jesus Christ, to run to the cross. Cling to the bloody cross of Golgotha and there you will find that your sins are forgiven and you will find the forgiveness that you seek. God help you to run to the cross and cling to Jesus today.
You can be right with God through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ who paid it all for you.
