Thank God for Calvary! It was at Calvary that sin's demands were paid. It was at Calvary that every question was settled. Long before the foundations of this world was laid, in the eternal mind of a Divine Creator, Calvary's hill was paramount.
Eternity can only reveal the effects that Calvary had upon this world. Even as the greatest story ever told began to unfold on Calvary, a thief, who was guilty, met the compassion of the Savior.
It was upon the literal ground of Calvary's hillside, Golgotha, the place of the skull, that the cleansing, healing, crimson flow made contact with the multitudes that have believed.
The work of Calvary reaches as far one direction in eternity as it does the other. It is because of Calvary that Moses and Elijah enjoy the splendors of Paradise, and it is because of Calvary that we have the hope of Heaven.
While there are millions who appear to be unaffected by it, I'm glad that in Weatherford, Texas, there are some who have made good the finished work of Calvary
