the unimaginably wide gap

In a single event, Jesus revolutionizes worship. By offering his body as a sacrifice for us, he makes it possible for the unholy to enter the presence of the holy. The unimaginably wide gap between sinners and their Maker is bridged by the unimaginably worthy sacrifice of Christ on the cross. The temple—the intersection of heaven and earth—finds its new locus in the person of Jesus, the God-man. If you wanted to meet with God, you once traveled to a building. Now, you only have to look for Jesus
