The work of the cross is the cornerstone of most gospel presentations—and rightfully so. However, believers commonly fail to connect the gospel back to God’s ultimate intention. This message looks at how the work of the cross and the way of the cross restore us back to God’s purpose for the ages. Specifically, it’s the work of the cross that restores us to the place where Adam would have been if he had not eaten from the tree of knowledge and had, instead, eaten from the tree of life. Furthermore, it’s the way of the cross that moves us from receiving the imparted life of Christ to the fullness of Christ, enabling us to become a Christ-like son for the Father, a prepared bride for the Son, and a temple for the Holy Spirit to possess.
