Daily Word

from New International Version (NIV)
Public Spectacle

Colossians 2:13-15

When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins,

having cancelled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross.

And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.

God is not ashamed of the work He did on the cross. He does not hide it or shy away from it. He wants all to know the power and authority He displayed.

He took our documented sins and nailed them to the cross. Our shortcomings and failures are nailed to the same cross. Our inability to properly serve God as we should is nailed to that cross.

He made an open show of us getting redeemed by the work of Jesus on the cross. We were redeemed by a public spectacle of His grace and mercy through His Word.
