Make no mistake mankind. Even through we weren’t there physically to witness His crucifixion, we all have participated in that crucifixion with our sinful lives. His red stripes of sin (depicted on the first slide) are in reality our sin. We are heart-broken that Christ was crucified for us sinners, but so glade He willingly choose to do so. His victory over death is our victory over death also! Ah, Jehovah’s providential workings coming to fruition for the sake of mankind. Amen–brothers and sisters–amen.
