The cross was invented to execute criminals in the time of the Roman Empire till Jesus Christ was killed on it. We have read it in the Bible , we seen it in movies. We heard it preached many times. We see churches adorned with it but have we fully explored or even come close to knowing its message.
Gather your best recollection of the cross and our Lord Jesus Christ and see what will be your response.
Whether you are Catholic, Protestant or any of the Christian denominations, please consider who Jesus Christ is and all the pains, heart aches, treatment, endurance, loss of blood, head swollen due to thorns, the shame, abandonment, every nerves of his body reacting, the body organs trying to function, the wind, heat, and dust, the pain from the nails, exhaustion, the lashes marks, the thirst,the dizziness, the mockings and ridicule, etc.
If you can not bear it anymore just thinking about it let us not forget He (Jesus, or Yeshua) did it or endured it for you and me.
For me those are enough to make Him my Lord and my Savior forever. How about you ?
If your response is the same as mine, would you consider sharing this blog so others may hear or read the message ? i hope you will share it.
