What a refreshing way to view what was accomplished in Jesus’ suffering.
Not merely an eternal accounting transaction,
but an absorption.
Absorbing evil until it becomes resurrection.
And what an interesting nuance to add to that age-old invitation,
“Come, take up your cross, daily.”

Absorbing evil. Daily. Until it becomes resurrection.

Like John Coffee in The Green Mile.

Okay, maybe we should just stick with accounting.
