For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. II Corinthians 5:21
The cross is the universal symbol of Christianity. I recently read a devotion that talked about the design of the cross and what it represented. One beam horizontal and the other vertical. One reaches out – like God’s love. The other reaches up – as does God’s holiness. One represents the width of His love, the other reflects the height of His holiness. The cross is the intersection where God forgave His children without lowering His standards. How? God put our sin on His Son and punished it on the cross.
As we approach the Easter season, may our hearts reflect on the great sacrifice, love and victory of our Savior.
