A connection to the cross I did not know about – an excruciating connection
I was reading a post on The Real Meaning of Easter tonight and something I read grabbed my attention and I felt compelled to share it. Here is the quote, and may it grip our hearts and make us more grateful for what Jesus did for us on the cross.
“To say the death of Christ was excruciating is no stretch, as the word excruciating itself is derived from the word crucifixion. It literally means ‘the pain of a crucifixion.’ “
Lord Jesus, You know what ‘excruciating pain’ means.
Thank you, God, for your mercy in Christ. In His Name. Amen.
