I ran across the following quotes from great men of faith. Read through them slowly on this weekend.
"The figure of the Crucified invalidates all thought which takes success for its standard." - Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
"The cross cannot be defeated, for it is defeat." - Gilbert K. Chesterton.
"There are no crown-wearers in heaven who were not cross- bearers here below." - Charles Haddon Spurgeon.
"We need men of the cross, with the message of the cross, bearing the marks of the cross." - Vance Havner.
"He came to pay a debt He didn't owe because we owed a debt we couldn't pay." - Anonymous.
"All heaven is interested in the cross of Christ, all hell is terribly afraid of it, while men are the only beings who more or less ignore its meaning." - Oswald Chambers.
Galatians 2:20 (NIV) 20I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
John 14:19 (NIV) 19Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live.
“Lord, there is no way we can ever fully value Your death or comprehend Your pain for us. Would you help us to live lives of gratitude by shining light on Your cross. Every moment of every day.”
