That’s one of the BIG lessons I’ve re-learned through this Covid-19 experience.
When I say, “The Cross Is My Rock”, I’m not necessarily referring to a Bible verse, I’m talking about the REALITY that Jesus, The Son of God, left Heaven, came to this broken world and endured all of that vile, heinous, torture and mistreatment FOR ME (and YOU)! And He did it because He LOVES us!
Reflecting on that…
Remembering that… has literally CARRIED me through so many tough times in life.
When I’m scared, confused, anxious, lost…
When I just don’t know what to do---I RUN TO THE CROSS!
In my heart, I pause, and REMEMBER, God’s Son died for ME. I am forgiven, loved, lavished with grace, a child of God… God is for me, in me, with me… He is all-knowing, all-powerful, and working in ALL THING for my GOOD!
I may not know what to do at this moment, or what’s around the next corner—BUT I KNOW THE ONE WHO DOES! And I know He loves me---because of THE CROSS!
Romans 5:8 (NIV) “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
I don’t know what you may be dealing with right now, but I know somebody who does, and HE LOVES YOU! If you ever doubt that---remember the cross!
