The cross - a tool of capital punishment - is a strange symbol of hope. No one would think of wearing a guillotine around their neck. But the cross is also where God is ready to forgive without lowering His standards of holiness. The cross is where God was ready to sacrifice his only child for the benefit of others because He loves humanity tremendously. Excerpted from Max Lucado's book He Chose the Nails. Uses various Bible versions for Scripture. P ack of 25 tracts.
