Christian Quote of the Week (or so!):

The Significance of the Cross

"The cross is the central point of the world’s history; all the great lines of our deepest moral and spiritual interests meet in it or radiate from it. It was once a thing must hateful and most horrible... But the Lord most holy died thereon for our salvation; and the glory of his precious love has shed an aureole of golden light around the tree of shame. And now the cross is to Christian hearts, of all things dear, the dearest and the most sacred; for it tells us with its silent eloquence the blessed story of the exceeding great love of our Master and only Savior Jesus Christ."

-– B. C. Caffin, from The Pulpit Commentary (1881), Vol. 34 (Matthew, pt. 2), pg. 608

Related Bible Verse: 
"'He himself bore our sins' in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; 'by his wounds you have been healed.'" (I Peter 2:24)
