The cross is about connection
Connection vertically and horizontally
There is no existence without the perfect connection.
Connection to God who sent us His only son to save us
Connection to Jesus who was nailed to that cross for us
Connection to the Holy Spirit who either lives in us or is knocking on our hearts longing for the opportunity to find a home in us.
Then there’s the other part, connection horizontally…
Connection to the world
The saved and unsaved
Cultured and uncultured
Connection to mankind
That brings hope, peace and assurance
The warm hug that covers all men in spite of.
Connection that causes us to find the orphans, widows, servants and have a genuine moment with them
Connection that draws our hearts to kings and presidents
The cross cuts both ways – vertically and horizontally…
Loving, serving and giving ourselves to people
Yet surrendering and sipping God’s goodness at His feet
The cross cuts both ways.
That’s the beauty of the cross.
