The cross forms an intersection. This intersection represents the relationship of God and man. Without the cross there is no relationship because none are righteous without His sacrifice. As we spend this next week and a half leading up to Easter, let's consider what the cross means, and the reason Jesus would willingly offer His life in that regard. Take some time to read and prayerfully reflect on the following verses and passages: Isaiah 53:6, Romans 5:8, 1 Peter 3:18, John 3:16 & Mark 15.
