Why a cross?
It is quite amazing that a celebration like Easter should have a key symbol as a cross. This image of torture and death used by the Romans would normally cause fear. Yet this cross brings hope. Why do I say that? The main reason is that the cross is no longer occupied. It was occupied by Jesus so that he could take away the sin of the world. Yet there is a condition and that is to believe. For God so love the world that he have his only son that whoever believes might have eternal life. We need to believe in him.
