The greatest injustice in the world

I read an essay recently that stated that the greatest injustice in this world is not the epidemic of AIDS, the daily destroying of life in the mother’s womb called abortion or human sex trafficking. Instead, it was suggested, the fact that there are still people in the world who don’t worship Jesus Christ is the world’s greatest injustice. I agree. The closer we get to celebrating another Easter, the more I am overwhelmed by what the holiday is really all about. God created man and had perfect fellowship with him. Man rebelled against God and sinned. Sin came into our world and has been wreaking havoc upon it ever since. Sin separated us from God forever because a holy God cannot look on sin. Because God is perfectly just, he was forced by his very nature to punish our sin. But because God is perfectly merciful, he enacted the punishment for our sins upon his son Jesus, who left heaven to put on human flesh, lived as a man, lived a life without sin and went willingly to the cross on our behalf. 2 Corinthians 5:21 says that Jesus became sin for us so that we could be declared righteous by God.  Don’t ever get over that, friends. We were sinful, but Jesus took our sins upon himself on that cross. When his father looked upon his son at that moment, for the first time ever, he saw sin, our sin, and his wrath came down upon it. What a moment in history, the moment that Jesus offered himself as the offering for our sins! Because of what he did, now anyone who places trust in our Savior is justified and reconciled to God forever. Not because of what we could do on our part, but because of what he did.

A look around the South American Paris

It’s called the South American Paris for a reason. Buenos Aires, Argentina, a city that looks and feels like a mixture of Rome, Paris, New York and Madrid, is one of the top tourist destinations in South America.
