He who rescued us from so deadly a peril will continue to rescue us; on him we
have set our hope that he will rescue us again. (2 Corinthians 1:10
It was not easy to look upon this cross of violence, and many people hated the sight of it. There were petitions to have it removed. There were cries that the ugly cross was a sacrilege and desecration. One pastor commented, "The reaction was understandable: we do not like to be reminded of the suffering of God for our sin."
We need to talk about the cross that nobody wants to see. Not the cross of guns and pistols and knives and bayonets and bullets and bombs and broken bottles. But the cross of pain and love and, ultimately, hope.
Lord Jesus, in the troubles of my life, please bring me hope. Amen.
