Christ and the cross...

I read this quote below today on a blog I read often.  I am thankful for the reminder of my true self and I am reminded how I need to be thankful on a daily, hourly, moment by moment basis for Christ and the cross.  As one of my favorite songs puts it "Jesus Thank You."

Every time we look at the cross Christ seems to say to us, “I am here because of you. It is your sin I am bearing, your curse I am suffering, your debt I am paying, your death I am dying.” Nothing in history or in the universe cuts us down to size like the cross. All of us have inflated views of ourselves, especially in self-righteousness, until we have visited a place called Calvary. It is here, at the foot of the cross that we shrink to our true size.
