“On a hill far away, stood an old rugged Cross, the emblem of suffering and shame, and I love that old Cross where the dearest and best for a world of lost sinners was slain.”
When we look at Calvarys Cross, we fall to our knee’s our heart and minds overwhelmed by God’s love for us in the Lord Jesus Christ, and His message of hope and reconciliation to men and women of every Nation. On that cruel Cross we can’t see pride, prejudice, bitterness or abuse. We can’t see lust for power. We can’t see oppression. We can’t see rage, anger or selfish ambition.
We can’t see unforgiveness. We can’t see mans ego, hate or envy.
We can’t see fighting, bitterness or jealousy.
We can’t see empire building. We can’t see self-importance.
What we do see is sacrifice, grace, forgiveness, and God’s way of Salvation. With everything that’s happening in the world and to us at the moment, you need as never before to take a moment and look to Calvarys Cross and the shed blood of Jesus and perhaps for the first time see the overwhelming love God has for you. “For God so loved the world, that whosoever, that’s you and I, believes in Him might not perish but have everlasting life.”
