Our study of Luke’s Gospel has us drawing closer to the cross. In the next few weeks, we’ll explore the meaning and significance of the cross and the events leading up to it.
We’ll (re)discover the suffering and death of Jesus happened for a reason, a reason that reaches through time and into our lives today.
The apostles Paul, when reflecting on the meaning of the cross in his life, said, “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20-21
The great hymn writer, Isaac Watts, reflecting on the meaning of the cross in his life, wrote “Love so amazing, so divine; demands my soul, my life, my all.” (from When I survey the Wondrous Cross)
What about you? How do you describe the meaning of the cross in your life?
