WHAT IS IT?

Perspective makes all the difference. The way we view what surrounds us often depends on what we have learned and experienced. The following imaginary episode illustrates this principle.

Imagine God standing in front of a classroom of men and women. He draws on the blackboard a vertical line over a horizontal line. "What do you see?" He asks.

"The intersection of two streets!" answered an engineer. "No! It's a geometrical figure made up of four right angles," argued a mathematician.
"Of course not!" said a historian. "It's a cross, ancient Rome's apparatus of torture."

At this, a Christian said, "That's a cross—Christ's instrument of love!" For the Christian, what really matters is the love of God in Christ Jesus.

"And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross..." . -Ephesians 2:16
