Without the Cross

Being Easter week, my mind has been naturally drawn to the image of the Cross. And what's been rolling around in my head today is how vital the Cross is to my relationship with God. Without what Jesus did on the Cross, I would not have the opportunity to know Him.

I'd live out a hopeless, lifeless, grace-less existence...and there would be nothing I could do to change anything.

The apostle Paul writes..."Christ presented himself for this sacrificial death when we were too weak and rebellious to do anything to get ourselves ready. And even if we hadn't been so weak, we wouldn't have know what to do anyway." (Romans 5:6 MSG)

Where would I be without the Cross?
