If you’re on I-10 today, somewhere between Houston and Atlanta, you very well may pass an interesting sight…a white SUV with a huge cross sticking out the back headed here to the Passion House. And it’s not just any cross, but a powerful symbol that reflected the grace of God at OneDay in Memphis. If you were there in 2000, you remember. Confession gave way to shouts of joy as we considered the price Christ paid to buy our freedom and cleanse our souls.
After a stay in Houston, the OneDay cross will again be visible at Passion 07, anchoring Pure Grace, a place for meditation on the cross of Christ in the Kneel prayer area. But how cool that it’s blazing crossing a big chunk of the nation on the way to Atlanta, a reminder of the way that has been made for us to come into the presence of God. There is no muck, or stench or stain in your life today that He Himself did not bear on that tree. There is no filth that cannot be made clean like snow. His cross is forever standing over us. Grab onto it with all your might today. And let it’s healing tide wash over you.
Father, I confess my shameful ways to you. Have mercy on me and restore my dark and twisted heart by the grace You have poured out so freely on the cross. Thank You for Your precious gift of love, Jesus Christ. Price-paying, sacrificing, restoring, live-giving, rescuing Jesus Christ. Help me to embrace Him now and walk in His light, Amen.
“And he himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness–for by his wounds you were healed.” 1 Peter 2:24
