Real life began at the cross. Real life continues when each of us goes to the cross to gain the life of Jesus. Eternal glory for our Lord and real life for us for all eternity because of the cross and our surrender to it.
The cross—past generations looked forward to it, our generation lives because of it, all eternity will look back on it. It is the single most important event in all of mankind's history.
In a time when the enemies of the cross are doing all they can to distract us and nullify the importance of the cross, we, as believers, can point to it in awe and wonder. It's the answer they are looking for. We need to show them the wonder, power, and life-giving promise of the cross!
