I See the Cross

“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” 1 Peter 2:24

Today I see the Cross. Today I feel the Cross. Today I hear the word of the one that was on the Cross. The Cross, the wood, and the nails are forever in my mind
My focus now shifts the one who was on the Cross. I can feel His love as I see every tear. I hear the chatter through the hammer and the piercing of His skin.

A sadness overtakes me but still i hear to focus on the one who was on the Cross. The stillness of that day. The silence of the ones that were praying on their knees
The sounds of the whip hitting His back, make my soul ache. But still I must focus on the one who was on the Cross. The crown being imprinted upon HIs head
His blood being shed. The darkness starts to settle in. Makes me want to turn my head away. But still I must focus on the one that was on the Cross.

It is Finished

His mouth became dry. He called out for a drink. He was mocked once again. The anger starts to rise in me, I ask how could they do this. But still I must focus on the one that was on the Cross. He calls to His Father with a loud cry. ‘Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani- My God my God why have you left me. But still I must focus on the one who was on the Cross. At 3pm the final words came…”It is finished” . Jesus bowed His head. He gave up His spirit. But still I must focus on the one who was on the Cross. At this same moment the curtain of the temple tore from the top to the bottom. The whole earth began to shake. Rocks split and tombs opened. People exclaimed “Surely He was the Son of God”. Jesus had told His disciples, ‘”After 3 day I will rise” and that’s exactly what He did.. My focus is no longer on the one who is on the Cross,. He is no longer there. I now focus on the one who has Risen. He has risen for me and He has risen for you.

His Love is now my focus.
