(“Why the Atonement?” – mp3)
The word “holy” means to be set apart. That’s what holidays are; they are “holy days,” days set apart from the others. Passion week is often referred to as Holy Week. We’re excited that you’ve joined us in making this week separate from the other weeks in our lives by focusing on what it is that Jesus really accomplished on the cross through these Passion Week podcasts.
Today’s teaching, “Why the Atonement?” is especially rich and helpful in explaining why an atonement was necessary. Philippians 2:12 charges us to “work out our salvation with fear and treambling.” This will help you do just that. Again, spend some time in appreciative prayer after listening. Until tomorrow! – Arthur
