The Cross: Our Only Hope

We are looking for a universal solution to our problems, but the cross presents itself in the midst of our dilemma as our only hope. Here we find the justice of God in perfect satisfaction — the mercy of God extended to the sinner, the love of God covering every need, the power of God for every emergency, the glory of God for every occasion. Here is power enough to change the world.” 

  Billy Graham, April 3, 1966, on his
“The Hour of Decision” radio broadcast 


 My prayer this week: Dear God, thank you for the cross! Thank you for its hope and power and promise! Remind me often — weekly, daily, hourly — to share with others what it means for humanity, not keep its Message to myself. The lost need you … I need you! Thank you for being the Answer to every problem, injustice, and occasion.
