The Cross: A Practical View

If what the world wants is Barabbus and it costs us our humanity — Jesus, as humanity in its fullness — then there on the cross it will hang. It is after we kill it something rises in our sensibilities; “Why in the hell did we do that?!”

What Jesus had been saying and doing all along is what you find out you wanted, once you got what you wanted, which was Barabbus! Living to that end, the life of Christ, for that kind of world, Jesus has risen and we’ve lifted him off the cross, alive in us.

Just a thought.
