The Wonderful Cross

The symbol of our great Savior, who laid down His sinless life for the sake of sinful wretches, is the cross. It is at the cross that we see His love poured out, overflowing as a river to cover the offenses and transgressions of mankind. We will never understand this love, nor the sacrifice that this love required, it is too high for us to comprehend. It is truly a wonder that we could ever receive life from the hand of God, and it is even more unfathomable that He would give His Son to perform such a miracle. This cross is wondrous. What a blessing that we can sing about it!
The Wondrous Cross
by Chris Tomlin

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died
My richest gain I count but loss
And pour contempt on all my pride

See from his head, his hands, his feet
Sorrow and love flow mingled down
Did ever such love and sorrow meet?
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?

O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross
Bids me come and die and find that I may truly live
O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross
All who gather here by grace draw near and bless Your name

Were the whole realm of nature mine
That were an offering far too small
Love so amazing, so divine
Demands my soul, my life, my all

 

Colossians 2:13-14, “When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions, having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.”
