Thank you for the Cross, God!
The Cross symbolizes so much including sacrifice and love beyond my imagination.
For God to SEND His only son to die for us blows my mind. And it should.
To take for granted what Christ did is to lessen our gratitude for the JOY of second chances. A second chance to live life fully with freedom. A second chance to live an adventure, one specifically designed just for me. A second chance for more second chances, given to me by a God who IS mercy and forgiveness and love.
The Cross symbolizes my second chance...and third...and fourth.
God of mercy, Lord of love! Thank you for the Cross.
