I Will Never Get Over the Cross

Sunset with cross

Sunset with cross ~ was hard getting a crisp silhouette of the cross with the trees in the background, but I think it still turned out nice with the colorful clouds

I Will Never Get Over the Cross

The Jesus we love is no longer on the cross.
The Christ we follow arose.

But I don’t ever want to get over the cross.

The Savior we serve is at the right hand of the Father. 
We can now approach boldly to His throne.

But I don’t ever want to get over the cross.

The cross is where Jesus paid the penalty for my sins.
The cross is what brought me to my knees.

I don’t ever want to get over the cross.

Hallelujah forever for the cross.
Because of the rugged cross I am free!

I will never get over the cross.

But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
Galatians 6:14
NKJV

    May He enable us never to let our hearts wander away from the cross … this is beautifully written, and exposes your heart for Him … thanks for sharing it with us!

      Thanks, Heidi. It just seems like the message of the cross is increasingly being replaced by health and wealth, signs and wonders. I know that our place is secure beside Christ, who is now seated in heaven, but I owe my all to the cross! Thanks
