Devotional Subject: Atonement

Richard L. Floyd

The atonement is not something that Jesus does for God, or that God did to Jesus.


A rabbi told me that a town with two Jews would need three synagogues: The one I go to; The one you go to; and one neither one of us would be caught dead in. Christians are much the same. But Jesus' prophetic words assure us that someday, God's people will ALL be one – within and across faith groups.
