At the Cross!

Today I had a good friend that explained Christ's crucifiction to me in the most amazing way. I have always thought of the cross as a nasty, hurtful object that took the life of my Savior. After my friend Van explained her theory to me, I see the cross in an entirely different light.
Van says that the cross was not the bad thing. Man's inhumanity to man was the bad thing. Really the cross was Jesus' last touch with our world. It was blessed to be the bearer of our Savior as He gave His life for us. We should pay tribute to the cross for that reason.
I have never thought of the cross in that way. Thanks, Van, for sharing this with me. And thank you Jesus for making the supreme sacrafice so that I might have life everlasting.
