Have You Looked at the Cross Lately?

pilgrimsprogressLearn from Christian’s experience in Pilgrim’s Progress (1688 AD):

So I saw in my dream that just as Christian came up to the cross, his burden loosed from off his shoulders and fell from off his back and began to tumble, and so continued to do till it came to the mouth of the sepulcher, where it fell in, and I saw it no more. Then was Christian glad and lightsome and said with a merry heart:

“He has given me rest by His sorrow and life by His death”

Then he stood still awhile to look and wonder, for it was very surprising to him that the sight of the cross should thus ease him of his burden. He looked therefore and looked again, even till the springs that were in his head sent the waters down his cheeks.
