One of the most powerful aspects of Christianity is that it goes beyond a belief, beyond a set of requirements or expectations. Christianity is not a philosophy or self-improvement program. Christianity is the restoration of God’s created order in humanity. The accomplishment of Jesus Christ on Calvary’s cross goes beyond pardon and payment for sin and removes the chasm that sin causes between humanity and a holy God. Jesus’ blood brings us near.
“But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.” - Ephesians 2:13 NKJV
