The Last Seven Words of Christ while on the Cross
A few weeks ago I was having a discussion with my pastor Warren Coe about some thoughts I had been having about items to post on this blog. I had been thinking that God was telling me to discuss some issues reguarding the importance of Jesus' Crucifixion.
I asked Warren the question, "Can you help me describe what is the big deal with the Cross"? Meaning how can we describe it to both Christians and non-Christians alike in a way that we all can understand it.
In my layman's mind, I know it is a huge deal, but I don't have a full-orbed understanding of all of its implications.
Well, it just so happened that Warren was going to be starting a series on the "Cross of Christ" called "The Voice From The Cross" taken from a book by Richard Bodey. This series was going to be focusing on the last seven words of Christ while on the cross.
So, I bugged Warren and he has given me permission to post his series here. I'm hoping I can convince him to become a regular contributor. You can email him to help me convince him.
Starting today, I will be posting his current series "Voice From The Cross". We would greatly appreciate your feedback.
