The cross is not a romantic symbol. It is a place of death and disdain. It is the place where our Lord and Savior died on our behalf. The cross where Jesus traded places with us, and took our sins on Him. He, who knew no sin , took the status of a sinner, That's why the cross with all its terrors is also a place of hope and life.
" For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."1 Corinthians 1:18
