No Cross, No Christianity

I nicked this idea from Mark Meynell, in comments on my blog a couple of week ago, but it bears repeating:

No cross, no… divine justice (Romans 3:25-6)
No cross, no… divine love (Romans 5:8)
No cross, no… cancelling of the law (Col 2:14)
No cross, no… defeat of the devil (Col 2:15)
No cross, no… reconciliation between people & God (Eph 2:11-22)
No cross, no… access to God (Hebrews 10:19)
No cross, no… one to open the scrolls of history (Revelation 5:2-6)
No cross, no Christianity (The Bible)

We never move on from the cross,
only into a more profound understanding of the cross.
—David Prior, BST 1 Corinthians
