Crucial

The Cross of Christ is the crucial center of all things. Here eternities meet. The streams of ancient history converge here, and here the river of modern history takes its rise. The eyes of the patriarchs and prophets strained forward to Calvary, and now the eyes of all generations and of all races look back to it. All human events marched toward Calvary and focus our eye on the One who was lifted up there to bear the whole mass of seething sin. There the cross turns our gaze to the rising dawn of eternity by the glory of Him who lifted up, draws us to Himself. This is the end of all roads … the center of all knowledge. The cross of Calvary is the place where God and man meet, the place where God in Christ reconciled the world to Himself. For He made Christ who knew no sin to be sin for us that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. Can we then neglect the privilege of bending our heart before the foot of His crucial cross?
