This weekend I am excited as I think about the cross. I’m concluding a 6 week series this week by talking about salvation. We’ll look at the purpose of salvation, the passion of salvation and the perils inherent when we think about salvation. Next week we start a series of 3 messages that look at the cross in some detail leading up through Easter Sunday when we’ll conclude the series by seeing how Jesus cancelled the written code against us while on the cross. All of this studying has just driven my head and heart to the cross and so this week, for Weekend Worship, I wanted to post a song the reflected the cross and caused us to think more deeply about the cross.
This video, of the classic hymn “When I survey the wondrous cross”, is not typical in that it’s not a live video. In fact, I didn’t even watch the video when I played it. It is a great opportunity, however, for you to just sit back, close your eyes and think about the cross.
I hope it encourages you this weekend. I’ll see many of you on Sunday!
