Sunday Picture

This cross is in the middle of the colosseum in Rome, a moving reminder of those Christians for whom "taking up their cross and following Him" meant sharing in his sufferings, being conformed to His death and paying the ultimate price for their faith.

What does the cross mean to you?

"That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:10-14)
