We are invited each day to look upon the cross with faith. That’s where Jesus bore our sins and won victory. There are no hoops to jump through, no need to prove ourselves. Salvation comes from God, not from us. It comes because of Jesus’ death and resurrection, not because of our best intentions or efforts.
Jesus told Nicodemus: “Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life” ( John 3: 14-15). So the best time you look at a crucifix, see the mercy of the Father who sacrificed his Son for you.
Lent isn’t over yet, so take advantage of this time to go a little further with the Lord and experience the healing power of the cross. #powerofthecross #lent #youareloved #youareworthdyingfor #thankyoujesus
