Today we get to hear from Yannick Christos-Wahab about why Jesus came to die. This episode was inspired by a conversation I personally shared with a friend who asked, “Why did it have to be Jesus? How can Jesus actually pay the debt I owe because of my sin?” This is such an important question for us to really know and understand, and Yannick is going to help answer it. So you’ll know a bit more about him, Yannick is from Nigeria, and was born and raised in London, where he is now a pastor at Stockwell Baptist Church. He is a husband and father, and he also co-authored a book called The Cross in Four Words published by The Good Book Company. We pray this episode encourages you to linger long on the cross of Christ!




  • What does it mean to you that Jesus came to die for the sins of humanity on a cross?
  • How might dwelling on your sin lead you to marvel more at the cross?
  • What Scriptures lead you to a deeper understanding of what Christ has done on the cross? Perhaps consider memorizing one of those passages.
  • How might you, even today, spend time marveling at what Christ has done on the cross on your behalf?
  • What are you going to do or implement as a result of what you’ve learned this week?
