The finished work of Christ at the cross is the starting point of history. It is the starting point for all the plans and purposes of God and God’s will for us is to live in and experience his victory at the cross. The greatest pleasure God has is when we feast on the finished work of Christ. For we are the breath and life of Christ in the bitter waters of the world. We are the flowing, healing stream of refreshing water cascading over the bitter deluge of pain. Christ in us, is the hope of glory to a broken and lost world.
