“The cross is one of our most robust, timeless, cultural symbols. No matter how dark our culture may grow, it just won’t go away. Artists mock the cross, Christians boast in it, others ignore it. But after 2000 years, it continues to define our faith. Is it a sign of offense, grace, or a window into a whole new order of things? Jon Tyson, author of Rumors of God and Pastor of Trinity Grace Church NYC, helps us see the counter-cultural message of the cross in a new way.”
Focusing on the true meaning of the cross and why we should boast in it, Tyson exhorts us to live out of the reality of the cross through the way we view ourselves, each other, the world around us, and even the mission field for the Kingdom. The cross not only eliminates our shame but is a testament to God’s affirmation the He chose us! It’s a 20 minute video, but definitely worth watching. Check it out here.
