"In the cross, Jesus acts to accomplish his purposes for all of history--to save the creation. Too often we reduce the significance of the cross to the fact that 'Jesus died for me.' Believers do share in the accomplishments of his death, and so we can say this with joy and confidence. Yet God's purposes move beyond the salvation of individuals. In the death of Jesus, God acts to accomplish the salvation of the entire creation: Jesus dies for the world."
