I’ll be reading John Stott’s classic book The Cross of Christ this week in preparation for Easter. Every day I’ll have quotes from this book as we move through Holy Week.
The cross transforms everything. It gives us a new, worshiping relationship to God, a new and balanced understanding of ourselves, a new incentive to give ourselves in mission, a new love for our enemies, and a new courage to face the perplexities of suffering. (p.17)
