Mighty is the Power of the Cross

Posted: February 12, 2007 in Thinking Theologically


I had the awesome opportunity to sing in corporate worship here at Wildwood a few weeks ago the Chris Tomlin song, “The Power of the Cross” and God has gripped my heart with the power and truth of the words I sang:

What can take a dying man
And raise him up to life again?
What can heal the wounded soul?
What can make us white as snow?
What can fill the emptiness?
What can mend our brokenness? Brokenness?

What restores our faith in God?
What reveals the Father’s love?
What can lead the wayward home?
What can melt a heart of stone?
What can free the guilty ones?
What can save and overcome? Overcome?

It’s a miracle to me
It’s still a mystery
It’s a miracle to me
The power of God
Those who believe

Mighty, awesome, wonderful
Is the Holy cross.
Where the Lamb lay down His life
To lift us from the fall.
Mighty is the power of the cross.

Such powerful questions, but an even more incredible response from God! The answers to any questions that you and I can ask are in found in the message of the cross! It’s the place where sin, death and hell were defeated and the place where I found new life. I have been praying that the cross will always remain a mystery and a miracle to me… that I would never take the cross for granted or forget it’s power to save. Have you found new life in the power of the cross?
