One saving sight of the cross!
(Horatius Bonar, "The Cross of the Lord Jesus")
"May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord
Jesus Christ, through which the world has been
crucified to me, and I to the world!" Galat. 6:14
The cross crucifies the world!
To the believer, the world is a crucified thing.
There is now enmity, not friendship; hatred, not love;
between the woman's seed and the serpent's seed.
The cross has produced the enmity! It has slain the
world, and made it altogether unlovable. One saving
sight of the cross strips the world of its false beauty
