"The cross was two pieces of dead wood; and a helpless, unresisting Man was nailed to it; yet it was mightier than the world, and triumphed, and will ever triumph over it."
Augustus William Hare
As Holy Week wraps, I'm reminded of what it represents.
It's not just the death of Christ, but the death of my guilt. My hopelessness. My loneliness. My fear.
It's not that I don't feel these things. I sometimes mail engraved invitations to those very emotions and let them camp out in my front yard.
No worse squatters can be found.
But their stay is always short-lived. I have access to the best eviction service - Jesus.
I hope you have access too. Everyone can.
