Want To See The...... Cross?

But he [was]wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5

Close your eyes and meditate. Feel, think, see that cross that Jesus died on and realize He died to set you free. Come... get on your knees, what do you see? He was nailed to the cross that He took and bore all our sins on Himself. Christ's BLOOD was shed for you and l whether we want to admit this or not. No doubt He bled out of control for us all on this earth which was once beautiful, but now man has destroyed it with his filthy hands.

We have no idea what Christ's face ever looked like, but His hands would of been hard and calloused due to being a carpenter, not soft and smooth looking like so many religions depict Him as having in their pictures of Him. His eyes no one knows what looks like, but He would of been shedding tears while hanging on that old rugged cross made out of a tree, weeping for each and every one of us sinners who deserve to take His place.

He suffered cruelly so we may have life. So, we all may have life and a choice to make a decision in whether we want to go to Hell or live and be in heaven with our wonderful Saviour.

That old cross, if you were to see Him in person as He was when He died on the cross, would you been able to take the horrendous sight of Jesus Christ our Lord being battered, bruised, beaten, mocked, ridiculed, made fun of, whipped, flesh torn from Him with strips hanging off Him, or was His death and crucifixion just a means for you to remember Him as He once was? And, not the reality of what really happened that sad day, saddest day in the history of the world.

His battered, bruised, BLOODIED and pierced body, you may ask why it happened? Good question to ask yourself and you will come up with the answer. YOU want His love; unconditional in you? Do you want to be saved from HELLFIRE? Or do you want security in knowing you can have eternal life with our Lord and Saviour in heaven? Read the 3 epistles of John in your Bible, as well as the book of John. Speak with a preacher or a strong Christian friend and they can lead you to Christ.

Life is nothing without Christ. He died for us. He lives so that we may live, too.
