31 Jesus-Benefits: Not Just Good Intentions

“He cancelled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross” (Colossians 2:14).

Fellow-Write31Days blogger Rachel wrote a post about Jesus’ death earlier in the week. It’s just beautifully-written if you want to click over and have a read.

“It is true! The Lord has risen” (Luke 24:34).
