The Cross as a Portal to a New Life

Is the Cross just a historical moment from the past? Or is it a place we can go to even today? When we have pain and sorrow, as all of us do, we can go to God and ask for His help knowing that He understands suffering. The Cross is a place where God suffered for all to see and He continues to suffer with us in our suffering.
God had an idea of “the way He wanted things to be.” But then, there was this world–“the way things are.” The difference between the two created a loss for Him. Same as with us. We can take to the Cross the way we wanted things to be and the way things are. We suffer to face our loss but there is a transformation waiting for us in that place of truth. If we will allow Him, God will pick us up and bring life back to us–but with a new power and vigor where we have connection with His love and provision in the areas where we were hurt.
