The Cross in Four Words
Yet sometimes we are so familiar with the cross that it loses its impact on us. We forget that Jesus’ death on the cross and his resurrection are the most important events in human history and our lives. The cross is the fulfillment of God’s salvation plan, promised from the dawn of time. It is central to the Bible, central to our faith, and central to the meaning and purpose of our lives.
This foundational book looks at passages from both the Old and New Testaments to sum up the victory of the cross in four words: freedom, forgiveness, justice, and purpose, and what that means for us personally.
Marvel at the cross afresh and be moved to love and serve the Lord Jesus with renewed zeal and joy.
This short yet profound book is a very useful discipleship tool. It can be read individually, in pairs, or in small groups.
If we forget the cross—or fail to understand our desperate need of its reconciling work—we will lose our joy. The Cross in Four Words redirects our gaze to “Christ crucified,” reminding us of the love that bore our sin so that we might experience true freedom, forgiveness, justice, and purpose. This helpful book will refresh your heart and renew your mind in the wonder of such a great salvation.
