Week 24, 2022

Week Twenty-four of Cultivate Delight, where we are actively planning our spiritual endeavors this coming week with the goal of a consistent time spent engaging our hearts with Christ in his word, in prayer, in reflection, and in music. Below are some starting points for reflection, and I hope you find them helpful. The goal is to not just rush through these and then get on with your day. Take your time and reflect throughout the week on these items.

“I thought I could have leaped from earth to heaven at one spring when I first saw my sins drowned in the Redeemer’s blood.”
Charles Spurgeon

Question 24: Why was it necessary for Christ, the Redeemer, to die?

Since death is the punishment for sin, Christ died willingly in our place to deliver us from the power and penalty of sin and bring us back to God. By his substitutionary atoning death, he alone redeems us from hell and gains for us forgiveness of sin, righteousness, and everlasting life.

Colossians 1:21–22
And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him.


Prayer

Precious Redeemer, Jesus Christ. The true lamb of God who has come to take away the sins of the world. Jesus you are the true and perfect lamb. The spotless perfect sacrifice who alone is worthy to praised and honored and glorified. You are our Redeemer. Your sacrifice upon the cross has paid the ransom for my soul. I am now yours and yours alone. There is no other. All others are pretenders and deceivers. You have redeemed for yourself a people. A people who were lost and in slavery to sin. A people who were in every way an enemy. With your sacrificial death, you have taken the full wrath and penalty due. In place of wrath, you have given us righteousness, your perfect righteousness. We are now yours, forever and ever. Eternal life in the presence of our God and Savior. This is the gift you have given to your redeemed. Your love is so amazing and so divine. May this always be at the forefront of our heart and mind.

And there I’ll serve my king forever
In that holy place.
