The Cross

In Colossians chapter two, the Apostle Paul says that Christ DISARMED the powers and authorities by TRIUMPHING over them by the cross. There is an old hymn that says it well. The words may be archaic, but the message is right on target for TODAY. Read the words with me.

Bane and blessing, pain and pleasure,
by the cross are sanctified.
Peace is there that knows no measure,
joys that through all time abide.

YES! It is true that the EMPTY CROSS and the RISEN CHRIST are our ONLY hope for this life and eternity. The powers of sin and death are defeated and we are HOME FREE!

I love this truth and hope that you also will find it encouraging today.

-Mel
