The Cross is a Reminder of God’s Love
Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
The Cross is the Means to Justification
Romans 5:9 “Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him!”
The Cross is the Means to Sanctification
The Law cannot make us holy. We need the power of the Holy Spirit and we can only have Him by faith.
The Cross Separates the Believer from the World
“My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of it.” John 17:15, 16
Can you see why Paul boasted/gloried in the cross? It is the way to life for time and eternity. Have you received the benefits?
Are you living in cooperation with the Holy Spirit?
