Have you received your site at the cross? Some may stop here and think, I was never blind. When you are in sin, you are spiritually blind, so God has to open your eyes at the cross. There are three things Jesus told His disciples to do. First, He told them to deny themselves. Second, take up their cross. Third, follow Him. In this world, we relate to things through time (when), space (where), matter (what) or energy (how). There are two things missing; why and how. Why we are and who we are are missing because God defines that. It’s at the cross that we realize the who and the why of life. The cross is a weapon of mass destruction. It is a way to kill you and make you suffer for a long time. The powerful thing about this is that Jesus knew what He was going to have to go through. Beaten, bruised, tortured and killed. He asked us to take up our cross, not His because His was way too much for us to bare. The dimensions of the cross have meaning. The lateral dimension of the cross is us reaching out to each other, meaning we can’t do it by ourselves. We need each other. Then there is the part that sticks up towards the sky because we need God. Finally, there is the part that sticks down in the ground, that signifies the relationship we have with ourselves which is often the one left untapped. The cross Jesus wants us to carry is not a physical cross. He wants us to love everyone, even those who hate us. Carrying the cross is not easy but it is one of the only things Christ asks of us.
