The Message of the Cross


As we remember the crucifixion of the Savior today I wanted to post lyrics from a great song.  Hundreds, possibly thousands of songs have been written on the cross.  Everyone has a favorite (favorites change with the seasons of your life).  These lyrics speak from the heart of the gospel

This song was written by Delirious and appears on their Cutting Edge, Disc 1 (if you don’t own Cutting Edge 1 & 2 you need to – they are super classics).

“This is the message of the cross, that we can be free,
To live in the victory, and turn from our sin,
My precious Lord Jesus, with sinners you died,
For there you revealed your love and you laid down your life.

This is the message of the cross, that we can be free,
To lay all our burdens here, at the foot of the tree,
The cross was the shame of the world,
but the glory of God,
For Jesus you conquered sin and you gave us new life!

You set me free when I came to the cross,
Poured out your blood for I was broken and lost,
There I was healed and you covered my sin,
It’s there you saved me, this is the message of the cross.

This is the message of the cross, that we can be free,
To hunger for heaven, to hunger for Thee,
“The cross is such foolishness to the perishing,
But to us who are being saved, it is the power of God!”

You set us free when we come to the cross,
You pour out your blood for we are broken and lost.
Here we are healed and you cover our sin,
It’s here you save us,

You set me free when I come to the cross,
Pour out your blood for I am broken and lost
Here I am healed and you cover my sin,
It’s here you save me, this is the message of the cross.

Let us rejoice at the foot of the cross,
We can be free, glory to God. (repeat)

Thank you Lord, thank you Lord,
You’ve set us free, glory to God. (repeat)”

  • The cross is the greatest statement of love ever made.
  • The cross is God’s successful rescue of humanity.
  • The cross is God taking our place in the court of divine justice.

May the power of the cross be realized in your life each and every day.  Jesus died and rose again so that you can be free from sin, sickness and the curse of the law.  Your enemies have been defeated.  Victory has been won for you.  Live like it.
