Remember the cross

 

In the spring of the year, at the Easter season, we reflect upon the cross and the majestic love contained therein. But as fall is approaching, do we continue to dwell on the cross? Let’s turn our thoughts and prayers toward the cross every day.

What do you see when you see a cross? Maybe it is a necklace, a wall hanging, a picture, what does it bring to mind? Do we see the vast love of God and the giving of His Son on the cross for our redemption? We want to dwell on Jesus, our Messiah’s love for us, and living in a state of thanksgiving.

“How much more, then, will that blood of Christ, who through the eternal spirit offered Himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God.” (Hebrews 9:14) Christ’s blood was shed on the cross to take us from sin and death and brought us to a living god. Praise His name.

“And God forbid that I should glory except in the cross for our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” (Gal. 6:14) We can rejoice in the Lord Jesus Christ who gave His life on the cross for all the world. Praise His Name, we can be a child of God because of the cross.

In Colossians 1:20, we read the following, “...and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.” We can take such comfort in knowing that we can have peace with God because of the bloodshed on the cross.

He gave His all for us. We can live in the presence of God through our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ and rest on Him in every area of our lives.

Caring for us, on the cross He died, all of our sins destroyed and tied!

Righteous without sin was He, because of His love, we’re free!

On the cross He paid the price, He is our Savior, our Christ.

Suffering for us, what great love, sent by our gracious God above,

Set free, no longer bound, a new life in Christ we’ve found!

Loyce McCarter 2012

Christ was nailed to the cross, but it was not the nails that kept Him there...It was His eternal love for each of us. That is a love completely beyond our comprehension, but we are eternally grateful.

The cross of Calvary is defined with the word LOVE and we can forever claim the promise of our Lord Jesus Christ, who paid the ultimate price for our sins, that we can live with Him now and for all eternity.

Let’s remember the cross each day of our life and share the good news with everyone around us. Praise the name of the Lord.
