Sunday Morning SoundBytes – 4/6/2014

Sunday’s message from the Lead Me to the Cross series was called At the Cross, taken from Matthew 27:32-46. Here is a brief outline of the message:

I. Jesus bore the full pain of the cross (32-34)
       – physical suffering
   A. He used up all his strength (32)
   B. He refused to dull the pain (33-34)

II. Jesus bore the full shame of the cross (35-38)
       – emotional suffering
   A. They took his clothing (35-36)
   B. They mocked his true identity (37)
   C. They crucified him between two thieves (38)

III. Jesus bore the full insult of the cross (39-44)
       – relational suffering
   A. Those who passed by hurled insults at him (39-40)
   B. The religious leaders mocked him (41-43)
   C. Even the thieves heaped insults on him (44)

IV. Jesus bore the full penalty for sin at the cross (45-46)
       – spiritual suffering
   A. He was forsaken by God
   B. He paid the full price for all our sins (Isaiah 53:4-6)

“The greatest suffering occurred at the cross because the greatest price was paid at the cross.”
