WHAT THE CROSS MEANS TO ME (Sermon)

SUNDAY’S SERMON (What the Cross Means to Me)

I’ve carried a cross in my pocket for a long time. It doesn’t bring me luck. It’s not there to identify me as a Christian, nor does it protect me from harm. But what it does is remind me of some things. Every time I stick my hands in my pocket and I feel that little cross I remember certain things. It reminds me of …

C hrist – I remember that Christ is in the center of my life and my focus needs to be on Him.
R esponsibility – I’m reminded that there’s responsibility in carrying a cross.
O thers – It’s not just about me. It’s about others … loving others and serving others.
S in – Sin is ugly, and it’s my sin that put Christ on the cross.
S trength – I find strength in and through the cross.

I love the cross. It reminds me who I am and whose I am. Listen to the whole sermon here: (What the Cross Means to Me)

    Well, Trey, I am going to comment on something else you had – the Cross. I think it is great that when you feel that little bit of metal, it can remind you of so much more. Although we shouldn’t have to have material things to remind of us Christ and His sacrifice, since we are all human, it is good to be reminded often of whose we are, and why we are here on this earth. Thanks for that reminder.

    Trey, I like the cross in your pocket idea, and, with your permission I will just count that as one of your suggestions for my question of the day.

    Thanks for your post.

  • As crazy as it might sound, Chris Collinsworth just might be worse to listen to than the song Christmas Shoes.
