Offence of the Cross

Offence of the Cross

How did we get to the point where we don't take offense of the cross being out?
Chi Rho the first two "greek" letters in spelling of Christ. The cross has become fashionable item. The cross should represent the blood of Jesus who bled and died for you: Drove nails in hands and feet, pieced in the side, crown of thorns on His head. Imagine the cross being a firing squad, and you are innocent of sin or what was accused. Jesus wants us to know that in the cross there is life. A lot of us don't understand the purpose of the cross, that it gives us eternal life. The cross was given to us because it was prophesied that he was going to be on the cross before Jesus was born. When you are being crucified you are naked, when Jesus was crucified he was naked, tried to shame him. He took our shame when He was crucified. Transgressions are sins that you do that you don't know you are doing, when you didn't know any better. Iniquities are sins that you do deliberately. Jesus covered it all. He went through something for me and you. Cross of salvation. Paul preached the cross and Jesus Christ. The cross will set you free. Do you understand what Jesus went through for you?
