The Cross of Jesus
(By: Ray Troost, Jr.)
NOTE: I enjoy telling others about what Christ means to me. Thank you for allowing me to share this with you!
At one time there was a tree that stood straight and tall. It's branches reached out toward heaven and swayed as the wind blew. The breeze would rustle its leaves and make such wonderful sounds.
Each year it would lose its leaves and when winter came it would creak and groan. When spring came it would again have its wonderful leaves and was so very proud of them. Then one day a man laid an axe to its trunk. That old tree groaned and as it fell, you could hear its cry. Why me, Lord?
They cut all its branches off and it became nothing but a log. Then they started cutting it into parts and the men were talking about a cross. They cut notches out of the log and fit the pieces together and turned that old log into a cross.
Some men made a man called JESUS carry that cross. The cross could hear the groans of Jesus as He drug it and himself through the rocks and sand.
Jesus was taken and nailed to that old cross and the cross groaned as the nails sunk into it.
This Jesus said not a word, but that old cross could hear His groaning. That old cross could feel the blood of Jesus run down its sides. The old cross knew that it was stained with that blood forever.
This old cross has made history and will always be remembered for giving its life so that Jesus was able to give His.
That old cross is talked and sang about each and every day around the world. Wouldn't it be something if you were that much for Jesus, and willing to lay your life on the line like that old tree did so that others may be saved that are lost?

Let God Use Your Salvation Testimony!
Dear Reader - are you at peace with God? If not, you can be. Do you know what awaits you when you die? You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God? We plead with you ... please don't make such a tragic mistake.
To get to know God; to be at peace with God; to have your sins forgiven; to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity; to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help understand the importance of being reconciled to God. What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one. Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life.
