A Picture of The Cross

A Picture of the Cross

It’s the picture of violence
Yet the key to peace

A picture of suffering
Yet the key to healing

A picture of death
Yet the key to life

A picture of utter weakness
Yet the key to power

A picture of capital punishment
Yet the key to mercy and forgiveness

A picture of vicious hatred
Yet the key to love

A picture of supreme shame
Yet the Christian’s supreme boast.
