JesusOnCross_01I’m thankful for the cross of Christ.

It is the altar upon which the sacrifice of God was placed. In the Old Testament, men brought their lambs to the altar outside the Temple. The lamb represented that man, and its death represented the payment for that man’s sin. It had to be the best lamb he had, too.

Christ was offered by God, not for His sins but ours. He offered Jesus as the perfect lamb, the best. His death represented the payment for the sins of all mankind. He was nailed to His altar outside the gates of Jerusalem. And His death bought me from Satan and brought me to God.

Without the cross I am nothing.

Thank God for it.
