A Cross where the Christmas Tree was
In the same place where we had our Christmas Tree, we now have the cross with art images . Jesus was born to die. He was born as a baby to grow and die; to atone for the sins of many.
Reminders, places to stop and look at. Times to set apart and meditate and think of what the cross really means.
Where I am today has to do with the cross; if I have been saved by God’s grace, then it is because of God’s Son on the cross bearing my guilt, my death; if I am still living in sin, it is in the cross where I see clearly what God thinks of sin, and how He punishes it with a fierce wrath.
The cross should make us think of the glorious life that we now have and at the same time of the horrors of sin.
Sin, a word, not so used lately, even among Evangelicals, (I hear them only talk about the “promises they must claim”, and the “joy of the Lord”), was nailed on the cross, because of Jesus’ sacrifice now I am free from the bondage of sin, but I am also in a daily battle… What am I doing to fight against that sin that still wants to have dominion over me?
I must fix my eyes upon Jesus, and not forget the cross.
A beautiful lesson of repentance by Elise.
