The cross is all around us it adorn’s building and people and it has come to mean many different things to many different people. To some it is a symbol of a old religion that is no longer relevant. To some it is fashion, a little bobble to wear and to others it represents hate and a closed mind and yet to others it means nothing.
I don’t know where you are as you read this, but i have to tell you the Cross is the most significant thing that has ever happened in human history and to believe in it the way the Bible says it happened you don’t have to check your brain at the door. The Cross is able to take all the criticism you can throw at it and it will still stand as God’s remedy for the “Human Condition”.
After thousands of years we human’s still have the same basic needs: to be loved and to love, to have a purpose, to express ourselves, to belong and to become and to connect with our creator God not just any God, The God that made everything and everyone, “I Am” the God that showed the world what he is really like by coming to earth as a child and living with us to show us how much he loves us.
The cross is the ultimate expression of his love for us. and there are some things about it you need to understand.
1. The Cross will interrupt your plans
2. The Cross will take us to a place
3. The Cross identifies who you are
4. The Cross makes you chose
No matter what you think about the Cross sooner or later you will have to deal with it, and it is better sooner than later. Receive it, cling to it, love it because through it we will find God’s forgiveness “and they nailed him to a cross” Jesus died so you could truly live.
That’s the way I see it in my market.
