Devotions from Judy’s heart

This week I have made 5 trips to our church in Hackensack, and as I traveled, I noticed the power line poles along the road are in the shape of a cross. What a wonderful reminder of the power of the cross as it says in I Cor. 1:18 “For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”  We need to be connected to the power line of the cross.  I can think of so many hymns about the cross as well and how important it is to embrace the cross. I have many crosses in my jewelry box and one lady from our church wears 3 of them all at once. Can we fully comprehend what it cost the Lord to die for us and to think He would have done it just for one of us? Let us ask Him to keep us connected to the cross and let His healing power and love flow into us. As it says in one hymn, “My past with its sin and stain; My guilt and despair, Jesus took on Him there, and Calvary covers it all.”
