The Blessings of the Cross

Here we are counting our blessings and is there a better place to start than with the blessings of the Cross?

By one man we became a slave to sin, and by one man we have been set free.

It took a cross to free us. He died for us. He was beaten, broken, bruised and crushed. He was abandoned and rejected and all for us.

For us He lived and for us He died. For us He lived again.

And in that offering of His life upon the Cross, He blessed us.

In that offering of His life upon the Cross, He brought to us hope.

In that offering of His life upon the Cross, He brought to us healing.

In that offering of His life upon the Cross, He brought to us freedom.

In that offering of His life upon the Cross, He brought to us life.

In that offering of His life upon the Cross, He brought to us beauty.

In that offering of His life upon the Cross, He brought to us peace.

In that offering of His life upon the Cross, He brought to us salvation.

In that offering of His life upon the Cross, He brought to us forgiveness.

In that offering of His life upon the Cross, He brought to us love.

One cross. One death. Many blessings.

Do you thank Him? For His love? For His grace? For blessings He brought to us through the Cross?
