Embracing Your Resurrection
Christians are (supposed to be) familiar with the Cross and the work done on it. Depending on your view of atonement, what you define as “work” may vary, but, generally speaking, it is that Jesus died for humanity and because of the Cross we are able to be reconciled to God. Thus the Cross is a large focus of Christianity, becoming itself a major symbol of Christianity. The Cross is, rightly, the focus of much preaching and teaching of the Gospel.
The Cross is usually associated with forgiveness. Songs about the crucifixion, such as At the Cross by Hillsong, usually deal with our sins, failures, repentance and how God has covered them by the blood of Christ.
However, the Cross isn’t everything.
