“But we see Jesus…”

Heresmyheart“Rather than sinners being exterminated, children being dashed to pieces, and wives being raped in the day of the Lord’s “coming, cruel, with fury and burning anger,” as envisioned by Isaiah (Isa. 13:9–16, NASB), God in Christ was violently seized, beaten, and crucified. Instead of destroying sinners, God allowed himself in his Son to be slain by sinners and for sinners on the cross. “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Cor. 5:21).”

About Mel Wild

God's favorite (and so are you), a son and a father, happily married to the same beautiful woman for 36 years. We have three incredible adult children. My passion is pursuing the Father's heart in Christ and giving it away to others. My favorite pastime is being iconoclastic and trailblazing the depths of God's grace. I'm also senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in Wisconsin.
