The cross of Christ stands in the center of the universe. Connecting eternity with time. Connecting eternity passed, with the eternity to come. Without it we stand separated from God. But, Christ stepped out of eternity into time. He put on the humility of humanity in order to rescue His fallen people. His decision is beyond our comprehension.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
