Make It To The Cross…

Buzzard Blog had a wonderful post on bible reading in full view of the cross. It makes sense…especially for me. He states:

“If you don’t make it to the cross, you’ll make your Bible reading and your relationship with God about your performance rather than about Jesus’ performance. You’ll gravitate away from the gospel and towards religion. Anxiety and fear will take the place of confidence, joy, and rest. Legalism will replace freedom. If your eyes don’t catch a glimpse of the cross as you turn the pages of Scripture, you’re likely to spend much of your day staring at yourself, wallowing in endless introspection, rather than staring at your Savior, delighting in his costly love.”

    I think that is such an amazing thought. I happened upon this blog from an image search for the cross through google. Today I just finished a blog on Bible study with a similar theme. I just wanted to share that with you: http://apostlepd.wordpress.com/2007/11/17/who-invented-the-one-year-bible/
