Looking Back - The Cross

“Every time we look at the cross Christ seems to be saying to us, I am here because of you. It is your sin I am bearing, your curse I am suffering, your debt I am paying, your death I am dying. Nothing in history or in the universe cuts us down to size like the cross. All of us have inflated views of ourselves, especially in self-righteousness, until we have visited a place called Calvary. It is there, at the foot of the cross, that we shrink to our true size.”

~ John Stott

Thanks for this awesome post Kenny. How true it is. We owe it all our Jesus Christ and His willingness to take on our sins at the cross. Mom
