The Cross is Our Ground Zero

Why the cross is the crux of the Christian faith…

The cross is our Ground Zero
where death gave way to life.
Where love reached out amid a world of terror.
It's where we are reminded of
the peace God longs to give
to every man and woman everywhere.

The cross is our Ground Zero
where history recalls
a day that no one ever can forget.
A day God spoke amid the groans
of pain and misery
while canceling our unpaid moral debt.

The cross is our Ground Zero
where (with gratitude) we bow
acknowledging a sacred sacrifice.
This symbol of our liberty
and freedom from our past
forever calls to mind sin's ugly price.
