Question 10 at 42:05 mark: Did you see the cross today? If so, how did it affect your heart?
Quintin writes, "I have seen the cross in a new found way today. I have been impacted by the cost of this blood of Yeshua and that my job is to receive. So impacted by this hymn:
“Twas I that shed the sacred blood;
I nailed Him to the tree;
I crucified the Christ of God;
I joined the mockery"
I do love that sketch that shows no matter how high my mountain of sin, the "flood of Gods grace" is higher still."
Linda writes, "When I see the Cross and the impact upon the Lord, His suffering, to bring salvation I am crushed."
Elaine writes, "Yes, it is clear that Christ died for me and for my sin, it should have been me, my acts of rebellion should have taken me to the cross and yet his love for me is so deep that he sent his son to die for me to have my relationship with God. Being set free in Gods Grace is a gift. My sin was saying crucify him, and not save him. My life is costly to God. His son was the purchase of that cost. I’m looking at the cross and I do believe. I’ve been set free by Gods Grace. Grace is higher than my mountain of sin. Thankful to be set free. This was an incredible lesson and reminder of how truly blessed I’ve been. My soul has been moved and touched all over again. No mountain is too high. This is my heart today....."
Mike B. writes, "Yes, I have seen the cross. The sacrifice that Jesus did on my behalf. To redeem me, to buy me back. What an act of love. It was also a cool illustration to see that God's grace increases faster than our sin adds up. The illustration of the water level being above the mountain of my sin helped me see this truth a little better. At the end, I really appreciated when someone shared, "my wasted years bothered me." I look back at my 20 years of living in bondage and think of them as wasted years. But they do have a purpose. If I can use those years for God's glory, that would be awesome."
