The Two-Fold Rejection of the Cross

Jesus suffered a two-fold rejection. He was too holy to be received by sinful men. And in that awful moment of His sacrifice He was too sinful to be received by a holy God. So He hung between heaven and earth, rejected by both until He cried, ‘It is finished… Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit.’ (Jn. 19.38; Lk. 23.46). Then He was received by the Father.

Faith Rests on What You Think about God

Faith rests not primarily upon promises, but upon character. A believer’s faith can never rise higher than his conception of God. A promise is never better or worse than the character of the one who makes it. An inadequate conception of God must result in a weak faith, for faith depends upon the character of God just as a building rests upon its foundations.
