God came to us through the birth of Christ - we come to Him through the cross. This holy week is ABOUT THE CROSS and Christ’s death and resurrection. By it we are bought back together and into full relationship with our Creator.
A coach carefully puts a team together while mentoring each player into the best they can be. He prepares a team for play guiding them through the game and making necessary corrections to ensure the most effective play. He is there. He knows each player and develops their skill for the team’s sake. His sacrifices make it possible for a team to win.
God does the same for us. He carefully teaches us how to be the best we can be by preparing us and guiding us through life. He is there. Sacrificing His only Son, Jesus Christ, on a cross turned out to be the great and final substitution for my sin and yours. It wasn’t the nails that held Jesus on that cross, it was God’s love for us. As a once-and-for-all pure sacrifice He carried our sins to the grave. The cross made it possible for us to be on the winning team…God’s!
“...God made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21
PRAYER: Thank you for the power of the cross. It brought me to you, allows me to know you and makes it possible for me to live my life for You. Help me to carry your cross into the lives of others. In your Son’s name, Amen.
THE ONCE-AND-FOR-ALL CROSS...ONLY THE BEGINNING!
