  1. Russel Brockmeier says:

    We were always taught that the empty cross is the symbol of Jesus’ words, “It is finished.” He is no longer on the cross because the gracious work of atonement is done. It has been accomplished for all time so Jesus need no longer hang on the cross. It is a wondrous reminder of God’s love for us just as much as the empty tomb. It is all finished. Jesus has accomplished everything necessary.

    While I fully acknowledge doing/having any two ideas in a

    I’m taking a chance with both here.
    God’s blessings to you all.
