Friday's Five - The Cross


The Cross

God gives us the cross, and the cross gives us God. – Madame Guyon.

That terrible tree, which is the death of God and the life of man. – G.K. Chesteron.

There are some sciences that may be learned by the head, but the science of Christ crucified can only be learned by the heart. – C.H. Spurgeon.

By the cross we know the gravity of sin and the greatness of God’s love towards us. – John Chrysostom.

The cross is a tree set on fire with an invisible flame, that illumineth all the world. The flame is love. – Thomas Traherne
