As we inch ever so closely to the single event that changed the history of mankind, I am moved to share some thoughts about the cross and the empty tomb. These two facts are the epicenter of our Christian faith. Without these two, as Paul said, our faith would be futile and as a result, we would still be lost in our sins. This was a major fact in Paul’s argument back then, and it is the message the world needs to
hear today. As we enter the Summer of Salvation next month, it is important that we tell the story to all those who will listen. Mankind is drifting further and further into a spiritual abyss. They have no direction, no hope, nothing, as they are being carried away by the evil one of this world. They are spiritually bankrupt and are totally unaware of their situation.
As Jesus arrives in the city of Jerusalem this week, riding on the foal of a donkey, let us set our sight on this great crescendo, which demonstrates the love of God for his creation (Romans 5:8). This is a time where the power of the cross grips our hearts one more time, as our Lord, our Savior, our King, suffers and dies to free us from a well-deserved death sentence. Stay tuned and watch as the greatest plan ever executed, unfolds before your very eyes.
