I am going to boast about nothing but the Cross of my Master, Jesus Christ. Galatians 6:14
The single overwhelming fact of history is the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. There is no military battle, no geographical exploration, no scientific discovery, no literary creation, no artistic achievement, no moral heroism that compares with it. It is unique, massive, monumental, unprecedented, and unparalleled. The cross of Christ is not a small secret that may or may not get out. The cross of Christ is not a minor incident in the political history of the first century that is a nice illustration of courage. It is the centre. The cross of Christ is the central fact to which all other facts are subordinate.

With the vision of the Cross
Fill my heart with love for Jesus the Nazarene
Fill my mouth with Thy praise
Let me sing through endless days
Take my will, let my life be wholly thine.
O Lord You bore the cross and the pain of lashings for me
You bore the disdain and the taunting of the crowd and soldiers
May I always remember that You were separated from Your Father because of me,
Let me not forget Your great love for me.
Thank You Lord, I owe You my life.
I know I owe, I know I owe
A debt of love to Him I know I owe
Back to my sins I dare not go
Because a debt of love I owe.
