Glory of the Cross

All those who are trusting and following the Lord Jesus have come to see the glory of the cross. Painful as it was, there is beauty at the cross. Heart breaking as it was, there is joy at the cross. The perfect Son of God died for sinners. That still amazes me. I will boast only in the cross of Christ.

Getty and Townend have said it well in the final verse of "The Power of the Cross"

Oh, to see my name, Written in the wounds,
For through Your suffering I am free.
Death is crushed to death; Life is mine to live,
Won through Your selfless love.
