Have you wondered why Christians like the symbol of a cross so much? Wonder what it means to us? Is it actually that big of a deal? Does it truly have that much significance? Well, yes; more than you can possibly imagine.
Is Jesus our example we try to model our lives over? Is that all he is? Actually, he was and is, and needs to be for each of us, much more than just a great example. Christianity is about how what he did for us, enables how we live.
