The Cross - The Glory of Heaven
"God forbid that I should glory save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ" (Gal. 6:14).
THE cross was meant to be a stigma and men are still ashamed of the cross of Jesus, and only a divine revelation can make it as dear to us as it was to Paul.
But the cross is the glory of heaven. The angels sing of its triumphs and the ransomed adore the Lamb that was slain forever more.
On the Mount of Transfiguration God sent back the glorified men of two dispensations to bear witness to its importance as they talked with Jesus about His approaching death.
He died for me that I might die,
To Satan, self and sin,
Oh, death so deep, oh life so high,
Help me to enter in.
