Hope in the Cross

18 For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. ~ 1 Corinthians 1:18

Many people mock Christians for our love of the cross. They say Jesus wouldn’t want us to wear or remember His murder weapon, but that wasn’t Jesus’ murder weapon. No one took Jesus’ life from Him; He gave it up freely. The cross isn’t a symbol of tragedy but of victory. If there was no cross, there would be no death, and without Jesus’ death, there could be no resurrection. We would have no hope if it wasn’t for the cross. So, the cross isn’t a horrible, murderous symbol. The cross is the symbol of hope, for it was on the cross that Jesus paid our debt and overcame the world.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Hope in the Cross.
