Lead Me To The Cross

Filed under: Bible, Christianity, student ministry — Tags: , , — jodygambrell @ 9:23 am

Last night at eXtreme, we talked about the curse, the power, and the beauty of the cross.  Back in the days of Jesus, the cross was a symbol of death, torture, and brutality.  Jesus defeated death on the cross and now the cross is a powerful reminder of the redemptive sacrifice that Christ paid on our behalf.  Galatians 3:13 says,

Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written:  “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.”

He took our curse to the cross so that we may be right before God.  2 Corinthians 5:21 says,

For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

In preparation for Good Friday and Easter Sunday, my prayer is this:

Lead me to the cross
Where Your love poured out
Bring me to my knees
Lord I lay me down
Rid me of myself
I belong to You
Lead me, lead me to the cross

    You cite some scriptures for the substitution of Christ for sinners. I only hope that all ministers at Dawson would affirm this doctrine.
