Remembering and Embracing the Cross

We are approaching the week where we intentionally  remember the cross.  The cross is a symbol that no one would ever have worn because it represented death and humiliation.  Actually, it represented the most cruel death there could have been.  So, it does seem funny that we wear crosses on our necks and adorn our church buildings with them.

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. – 1 Corinthians 1:18

For followers of Jesus Christ the cross represents the power of God to forgive our sins.   The cross is a message of forgiveness and hope.

Recently Jeremy Camp came out with a new album.  There are some excellent songs on there.  This one I have posted below is particularly poignant when it comes to our sin in the shadow of the cross.  I trust you will be encouraged in this hope as you listen to the song.
