What does the cross symbolizes vertically ?
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
. Jesus Christ sacrificed himself so me and you could be free! The cross vertically symbolizes a bridge and pathway. Jesus Christ made a way for us to connect to the Father. No longer will we "perish but have everlasting life". I just want to take a moment and say that if you have not accepted Jesus as your personal Savior. I would for you to do that right now. Just say these words in your prayer. Lord please forgive me for my sins that I have done. I believe that your Son Jesus Christ was beaten, died on the cross, and on the third day rose again. Lastly, Lord I accept you into my heart and life. I commit myself to follow you. In Jesus name. Amen.
What does the cross symbolize horizontally?
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners
Since the Lord died on the cross. He broke our chains. He mended our broken hearts, and we can live in freedom and with Christ we can fix our relationships. The cross horizontally symbolizes the breaking of the chains between sin and us and the mending of our relationship with others. With Christ we can do anything!
Here is amazing song I love listening to called At the Cross by Chris Tomlin. It has been stuck in my head but it just reminds me what the cross symbolizes and how thankful I am for our Lord and his Son Jesus Christ. Have a blessed rest of your weekend. If you have any prayer request don't be shy to ask! Also have a Happy Easter.
