The Cross. What was it? What is it to you? What is it for mankind? When you get down to it, all of Christianity rests on that cross. Take a walk with Max Lucado here and see for yourself why so many call him savior.
One of my favorite quotes:
“Ironic as it may appear, one of the hardest things to do is to be saved by grace. There’s something in us that reacts to God’s free gift. We have some weird compulsion to create laws, systems, and regulations that will make us “worthy” of our gift. Why do we do that? The only reason I can figure is pride. To accept grace means to accept its necessity, and most folks don’t like to do that. To accept grace also means that one realizes his despair, and most people aren’t too keen on doing that either.
