The Cross of Jesus is the revelation of God’s judgement on sin. Never tolerate the idea of martyrdom about the Cross of Jesus Christ. The Cross was a superb triumph in which the foundations of hell were shaken. There is nothing more certain in time or eternity than when Jesus Christ died on the Cross; He switched the whole of the human race back into a right relationship with God. He made Redemption the basis of human life, that is, He made a way for every son of man to get into communion with God. The center of salvation is the Cross of Jesus, the reason it is so easy to obtain salvation is because it cost God so much. The Cross is the point where God and sinful man merges with a crash and the way of life is opened, but the crash is on the heart of God.
Oswald Chambers (1874 – 1917)
