What is it about the cross that is so wise? Ultimately, the answer to that question would require more explanation that any of our minds could fully comprehend, but there is also a simple part of the answer. The cross of Christ is about the blood of Christ. The cross is about a just God paying the penalty for sin. It is about the blood of Christ satisfying the just wrath of a Holy God. That is foolishness to many, but it is power and grace to us. Thank God for the cross, the blood and the resurrection of Christ. The hymn says it beautifully, “It reaches to the highest mountain. It flows to the lowest valley. The blood that gives me strength from day to day, it will never lose its power.”
Whatever you are going through in your life right now, run to the cross, embrace the cross, lean on the cross, trust in the cross. A crucified and risen savior is the answer to anything and everything this world can possibly throw at us.
