For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. – Ephesians 2:8,9
On a day such as today, there is nothing of ourselves in which to boast. Nothing. Everything there is and was and is to be is of, for and to Christ Jesus. The word skandalon is Greek for the concept of “a stumbling block” or “an offense”, that which arouses opposition. Everything about Resurrection Day is a skandalon, an offense, to those who know no sin, because Christ became the blame for sin, the skandalon, for everyone who ever lived.
In this I’ve received grace which I do not deserve and forgiveness which I cannot merit. To Him be all glory, honour, power and dominion, both now and forever. Happy Resurrection Day.
