Warren Wiersbe writes early on in The Cross Of Jesus, “Unless we go back to the Cross, we can’t go forward in our Christian life.” How true this is, and what a wonderful job Rev. Wiersbe does in taking us back to the Cross!
This book is divided into four sections: What Jesus saw in the Cross, why Jesus died on the Cross, what Jesus said from the Cross, and how believers should live by the Cross. In essence we go back to the beginning to learn how we should now live because of the work Christ completed on the Cross.
Wiersbe quotes Charles Spurgeon as saying, “On whatever subjects I may be called to preach, I feel it to be a duty which I dare not neglect to be continually going back to the doctrine of the Cross—the fundamental truth of justification by faith which is in Christ Jesus.”
Whether you are wondering what significance Christ’s death at Calvary has for anything, or if you have been a believer in Christ’s atoning death for decades, or you are anywhere in between, going back for a fresh look at the old rugged Cross―and the Savior Who was sacrificed there―is always beneficial. And The Cross Of Jesus is an excellent book to guide you through your journey.
