「私たちがまだ罪人であったとき、キリストが私たちのために死んでくださったことにより、神は私たちに対するご自身の愛を明らかにしておられます。」ローマ人への手紙 5:8



聖歌402番 「おかに たてる あらけずりの」 の通りです
♬ おかにたてる  あらけずりの  十字架にかかりて
  すくいぬしは  ひとのために  すてませりいのちを
  十字架にイエスきみ  われをあがないたもう
  十字架のなやみは  わがつみのためなり


Although the Tokyo Olympics are still four years away, Japan has already begun preparations to welcome many foreigners. For example, in order to make maps easier to understand, the Geospatial Information Authority (GSI) of Japan has decided to change 18 symbols that have been used until now.

Until now the letter X was the symbol for a police station, but it will change to an image of a police officer saluting. The letter H, the symbol for a hotel, will be changed to the image of a person lying in bed. The new symbol for the post office will be an envelope. Until now the symbol for a temple resembled the swastika of Nazi Germany, so it will become the image of a pagoda.

What do you think the symbol of the church will be? Until now it has been a cross. The new symbol will be a church with a cross on top. After all is said and done, the symbol of the church is the cross, for the cross of Jesus Christ is the center of all of the teachings of the Bible.

To many people, the cross is nothing more than an accessory, but to the person who believes in Christ, the cross is the symbol of God’s love to us.
God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)

According to the Bible, on the cross Christ died for the sins of all people. The sinless Christ became the substitute for sinful people. According to First Peter 2:24, Christ

Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness--by whose stripes you were healed.

It’s exactly as the hymn “The Old Rugged Cross” says:
[On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross, the emblem of suffering and shame
And I love that old cross where the dearest and best for a world of lost sinners was slain

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross, ‘till my trophies at last I lay down. I will cling to the old rugged cross, and exchange it some day for a crown.]
