I want to ask you a question that was asked of me lately last night. Simple question! The one that brought me to my core. it affected me so deeply, so profoundly. It could only have come from the Holy Spirit.

The question I was asked was “Do You Believe in the Cross of Christ?” Well that’s a simple one for me to answer. Of course I do. But when I got home last night, I couldn’t sleep. It was that question that caused me to revisit the true meaning of the Cross.

Well what does it mean to believe? True biblical belief requires action. So if you truly believe that Christ died that we may live, you should not only bring him to your knees but also bring him to your feet.

The Cross is a gift and it was paid for with Blood. That Blood that my sin and your sin required as the price of our ransom. Our sins that separated us from God died with Christ on the Cross.

John 4:4 says “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”

And his spirit in us gives us all believers the power over temptations of this world. The Cross of Jesus Christ promises to love you, forgive you, to give you a new life right now.

God has always been there waiting for us..for us. But we have to choose to take the first step that will change our lives. The Cross offers us the way out. The only way out.

There may be Somebody tonight. Somebody who desperately wants to know God’s love. Somebody who’s tired, Somebody who’s lost, Somebody who wants to be saved. If that’s you, I want to encourage you right now to open your heart and very simply ask Jesus to forgive your sins.

And I want to challenge all of us tonight “Take out your Cross and let it be a reminder of the amazing gift Christ has given us. Because it’s not just an idea, it is the way, the truth and life. And if you believe it’s the truth, let your light shine”.

Take up your Cross, show It!
