The Beauty of the Cross
I headed out early into a cold morning.
I found myself at the foot of an empty cross.
I am overwhelmed by the Love of God,
who allows me to look at an empty cross.
My sins have been cancelled.
That which stands in the way of my relationship
with the Lover of my soul
has been paid for – in full.
The cross is empty!
Come to Jesus.
He is real and alive.
He overcame death – your death.
Your sins demanded this payment.
Know the worth of your soul.
Know that the Lover of your heart
would pour out His blood for you.
Repent, dear soul, and give your life to Christ
while there is still time.
“He committed no sin,
and no deceit was found in his mouth.”
Then they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate;
when he suffered, he made no threats.
Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.
“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross,
so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness;
“by his wounds you have been healed.”
For “you were like sheep going astray,
”but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
1 Peter 2:22-25
