A Glimpse of the Cross

God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. Galatians 6:14 (KJV)

Several years ago while lying in bed waiting for sleep to grab a hold of me, I had a vision of the cross. I have never experienced anything like this vision before.

Instead of sleep coming to me, I saw a small screen like a television coming toward me, and as it came closer to me, it grew larger. When the window stopped enlarging, I beheld the most wondrous sight I have ever seen. The cross stood before me in all its incredible and spectacular wonder. Beauty and horror!

I felt as if I actually stood there at the foot of the cross. It was so close that I could have reached out and felt the texture of the wood. I looked up into my Savior’s face, but because of the darkness, only the outline of His body could be seen. The sky was almost black; it had turned so dark only seconds after our Lord’s death. The cross was a thick, dark wood, and just above the cross on the left side was a little bit of sky left, infused with an explosion of colors of deep red, orange and blue. The colors reminded me of the sun when it sets at dusk.

As I gazed at the vision before me, I could almost hear the words, "It is true, I died for you, and I have paid the price for your redemption." The true meaning of the cross stood out that night in a special way unlike any words could ever do.

Thank you Lord Jesus for dying for me that I may have eternal life. Thank you for showing me that you died for me and that you paid the price for my sins. May we all find peace and salvation in the cross that Christ died on.
