The Uniqueness Of Christ (14)

On our way towards the crucifixion of our Saviour, we travel by way of His transfiguration, the great event in which we hear these wonderful words concerning Him - ‘This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased’ (Matthew 17:5). Learning to view Jesus’ death in the light of this divine declaration, we join with Paul in his great words concerning Jesus - ‘the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me’ (Galatians 2:20). Together with Paul, we give thanks to God for the great message of the Gospel - ‘Christ died for our sins’ (1 Corinthians 15:3). We rejoice, with him, in the great love which lies behind the death of Christ for our sins - ‘God demonstrates His own love towards us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us’ (Romans 5:8).
