It is Not Our Sacrifice(s) That Secured Our Eternal Future!

The unintended consequence of this push, however, is that if we’re not careful, we can give people the impression that Christianity is first and foremost about the sacrifice we make for Jesus rather than the sacrifice Jesus made for us; our performance for him rather than his performance for us; our obedience for him rather than his obedience for us.  The hub of Christianity is not “do something for Jesus.”  The hub of Christianity is “Jesus has done everything for you.”
