Is where life begins!
It may sound strange that the cross, which was an instrument of torture and death, could be a place where life begins, but this is the clear message of the Bible.
It is vey clear that we live in a world that is messed up. We see wars, murders, sickness, famine and many other causes of suffering. The reason the world is in this state is because of man's sin and rebellion against God.
The only answer to the sin, which has brought down God's curse on this world, is that God's Son would bring God's curse on Himself at the cross of Calvary.
Each of us personally can only know freedom from God's curse by coming to trust in Jesus and His death on the cross to rescue us from God's wrath and punishent.
