As we approach Holy Week with all its drama and emotion, I would like to take this opportunity to focus on the cross and its significance for us who believe. Jesus purposefully endured the physical pain and spiritual alienation that accompanied the Calvary event. Although His humanity longed for another way to accomplish salvation, Jesus willingly hung on the cross and shed His blood to pay the penalty for our sin. We should never become calloused to the horrific nature of Jesus' sacrifice. He suffered, bled and died to take our punishment upon Himself. The natural man doesn't like to focus on the gory reality that was the cross experience, but for those of us who understand the spiritual reality that Jesus' death accomplished, that scene becomes a beautiful picture of love and grace. The blood of Jesus that flowed down that wooden cross is what provides a covering for our sin, and purchases our redemption. 1 Peter 1:18-19 says, For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. Jesus' blood is precious to us. It cleanses us. It effectively restores us to a relationship with God giving us peace with Him. The old hymn says, "So I'll cherish the old rugged cross." This Lenten season I encourage you to take a fresh look at what Jesus did for us at Calvary. His sacrifice should fill us with gratitude and devotion. It should also lead us to be committed disciples, willing to pick up our own cross to follow Him. A right perspective of the cross will make the resurrection even more exciting and powerful. Pastor Jim
