But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. Malachi 4:2

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . Galatians 6:14
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2

Christ Is All With A Big Boot!

The "Gospel Centered Everything" movement needs to hear this from the Gospel Incarnate Himself as He speaks these grace filled words to His own inner circle of disciples (not to the Pharisees):

"If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, where the fire never goes out. And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than to have two feet and be thrown into hell. And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell, where 'their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.'" Mark 9:43-48

And we all need to hear this, over and over again:

All the sinful hands, feet, and eyes that would ever be forgiven were counted as Jesus' sinful hands, feet, and eyes! And He was utterly cut off as no one in the history of the universe had ever been cut off, yet He was without sin and did not deserve to be cut off!

He was thrown into the fires of God's anger and judgment where the worm does not die and the fire is not quenched in our place when He died on that cross!

But the worm did die! And the fires were quenched! Because the infinite God-Man did quench the infinite anger of the infinite Father! And then He rose up from the dead in victory!

And now those dreaded fires of God's anger are quenched for us forever if we will only repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ!
