As we approach Easter, here are some quotes from Billy Graham about the power of the cross.
“The cross is the only way of salvation. And the cross gives a new purpose to life.”
“The cross shows the seriousness of our sin—but it also shows us the immeasurable love of God.”
“Sin was conquered on the cross. [Christ’s] death is the foundation of our hope, the promise of our triumph!”
“The cross is the suffering love of God bearing the guilt of man’s sin, which alone is able to melt the sinner’s heart and bring him to repentance for salvation.”
“The ground is level at the foot of the cross.”
“When Jesus hung on the cross, a great unseen cosmic battle raged in the heavens—and in the end, Christ triumphed over all the forces of evil and death and hell.”
“Though the cross repels, it also attracts. It possesses a magnetic quality.”
“To take up your cross means to associate yourself with Christ and to share His rejection. It means you take a stand for Christ even though people make fun of you, persecute you—or even kill you! ”
“The greatest vision of sin that a person can ever receive is to look at the cross.”
“Once you have been to the cross, you will never be the same.”
