At the Cross

"At the cross, at the cross, where i first saw the Light......"
It is @ the cross, that we FIRST SEE!!!

It was at the cross, that i saw the Holiness of God
It was at the cross, that i saw the Glory of God
It was at the cross, that i saw the Worth of Christ
It was at the cross, that i saw the Justice of God
It was at the cross, that i saw the Wrath of God
It was at the cross, that i saw the love of Christ
It was at the cross, that i saw the grace of God

It was THIS sight, that convinced me of my shame, shattered all hope in my own goodness.
It was THIS sight, that convinced me of the seriousness of my sin, the wickedness of my crimes.
It was THIS sight, that convinced me of the centrality of Christ, of His perfections in humility and grace.
It was THIS sight, that convinced me that i alone deserved the full wrath of God, and that i was hopeless unless another could stand in my place.
It was THIS sight, that convinced me of the debt of worship i owed my Creator.
It was THIS sight, that convinced me of the gain of forsaking all for the pearl of great price the glorious Jesus Christ.

Let us feast upon the cross, let us never move from the heart of the gospel, let us pursue a life in light of the cross. If your passions be low, if the fire seems weak, then return your thoughts to the cross and meditate upon the glorious revelation of the person and work of Christ!

This post is a pretty succinct summary of what the Lord has been working in my heart of late. While at the True Church Conference, I prayed that God would help me to more fully understand how He sees my sin and give me a deeper sense of brokenness over it. Through His Word, through preaching, and even through the songs we sang, the Lord did just that by showing me the cross. He is so faithful.
It was very nice to meet you at the conference. God's grace and peace to you and your family!
