The Cross Made The Difference

the cross

Without the cross I would have no good news to share with others. I would have no message of salvation. Missionaries would have nothing to say that could help lost people. The cross is at the very heart of the gospel (see 1 Cor. 15:3–“Christ died for our sins”).

For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.1 Cor. 2:2)

The cross teaches us a lesson on humility in another way. When we look at the cross, we see how the Lord humbled Himself, was willing to become a man, and was even willing to die a criminal’s death on the cross (Phil. 2:7-8). His example teaches us to walk humbly before God and men? If our Savior was meek and lowly, do we dare be proud?

My name is Cheryl Cooper Downum, I have been a survivor of childhood sexual and a victim of a stalker and sexual assault at 15. I endured a painful divorce in 2015. As I’ve walked this journey, I’ve found myself growing closer to Jesus. My heart is now infused with empathy for others that find themselves in this place. And, God has given me a story, a message of hope to share. A message birthed in my brokenness that brought forth a sweet-surrendered dependence on God’s unconditional acceptance and love. The reason I am writing this blog is; I have found in my life that the Lord often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad to our deepest calling. My desire is to encourage His children to seek a deeper relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. I hope that as you read my blog, you will feel inspired and encouraged. Thank you for visiting! God Bless! The Lord has also blessed me abundantly with 3 beautiful grown and married adult children.
