Pastor Lee and Gidget Athey Look to the Cross

If I were to ask you what symbol or image comes to mind when you think of Jesus? I imagine most would say the cross.
Look to the Cross
I went to a Catholic school growing up. What I remember most was in every room there was a carved image of Jesus on a Cross. I see the same thing every time I go to the St Francis Hospital to visit a patient.

The cross has become a symbol for all of Christianity. The cross says it all, doesn’t it?

Romans 5:8

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

When I doubt His love for me, all I need to do is look at the cross. It is there I see love; not just talked about but demonstrated. Love that is never demonstrated is hollow love.

I can say I love my wife but my actions speak much louder than my words. God’s actions speak much louder than even His Words. He demonstrated His love for us.

He put His words into action not only by creating us and breathing the breathe of life in us and giving us a beautiful world to live in and so much more but He went over the top by giving His very life for us on a cross.

You can’t go to the cross and walk away and not know that you are loved by God. Let’s allow His forgiveness and love to change us today.

Let us pray!
