Scripps-Mesa Bible Church

For SMBC the cross of Christ is important. The cross reminds us that Jesus’ death brings forgiveness of sins and freedom to live for God. The empty cross reminds us that Jesus is no longer dead, having risen from the grave, and is now with God the Father. The cross reminds us of God’s holiness, love, mercy, and grace and of Jesus’ willingness to die that we might live. The cross serves as a lesson of God’s great power – a power that can turn a symbol of humiliation, defeat and death into one of love, life and power and testifies that He can do the same with the junk in our lives. Also, the cross challenges us to live and love as Jesus did – self-sacrificially, seeing the needs of others as more important than our own, obeying the call of God the Father even to the point of death.
