The answer to the world’s terrible pain and evil is not a philosophical argument or a theological treatise. The all-sufficient answer is Calvary’s cross, where in fathomless grace Jesus, the incarnate God, took upon Himself the burden of our sins and bore them “in His own body on the tree, that we … might live for righteousness” (1 Peter 2:24).
If you have not been led to Calvary’s cross, let me take you there. He died for you and then rose again. Believe in Him and you will be saved (1 Corinthians 1:21). – Vernon Grounds
They are nailed to the cross, they are nailed to the cross!
O how much He was willing to bear,
With what anguish and loss, Jesus went to the cross,
But He carried my sins with Him there. – Brock
The pathway to heaven begins at the foot of the cross.
