Easter and the Cross - the core of our faith

The cross of Christ is the heartbeat of Christianity. It is a place of pain and horror, of wonder and beauty, all at the same time. Here we see the glory of God’s grace confronting the awfulness of our sin.
But what does the wonder of the cross mean to us in our “everyday” Christian lives? Do we only focus on it at Easter and when we come together to celebrate communion?
Here are some questions which may help us, during this Easter, to consider how the wonder of the Cross can relate to where we are on our journey of faith.
 What impact has the Cross made on my personality?
 Do I live in the light of the freedom the cross gives me?
 Am I dying to myself every day to live for Christ?
 Do I face suffering with faith and assurance?
 What is my attitude to death in the light of the resurrection?

Let us use this holiday time—whether here or away—to reflect and put each part of our lives (every thought, word and action) under the shadow of the amazing cross.
