Some excerpts from What Happened at the Cross

EXCERPT 1

The award-winning coach at the University of Alabama, Paul “Bear” Bryant, once said, “The price of victory is high but so are the rewards.”  Another Paul, the great apostle, declared that he would not boast in anything except the cross of Jesus and said, “I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 3:14). Victory is something we all want to experience. In fact, I have never met anyone who would choose defeat over victory.  But through life we all experience both, whether a competition, or battle between our will and God’s will. What is the greatest and most costly battle ever to take place? Who was the victor, and what was the reward? The greatest battle ever fought was between good and evil, and it took place at Golgotha, a rugged hill outside the walled city of Jerusalem.  Jesus Christ was Victory, paying the cost with His blood. The reward was the salvation of human souls.

EXCERPT 2

James Hastings, a Scottish minister and biblical scholar in the early twentieth century, told an intriguing story about a German artist named Sternberg. As a little gypsy girl was sitting for a portrait in his studio, she noticed on the wall a half-finished portrait of Christ on the cross. The girl asked who it was. When told it was Jesus, she responded that He must have been a very wicked Man to have been nailed to a cross. The painter told her that, on the contrary, “Christ was the best man who ever lived, and He died on the cross that others might live.” Then the little girl looked at him with such innocence and asked, “Did He die for you?” The question haunted Sternberg’s conscience day and night, for though he knew the truth about Christ, he had not accepted Him as his Savior. He found he was no longer satisfied with life until he answered the question that you must also answer: Did He die for you? If so, then you must die to self and find life anew in the resurrected Savior.

This is a meaningful book to choose now as we are heading for Easter.
