Loss of spiritual equilibrium happens to everyone. We live in a fallen world and sin, in just no time at all, can cause us to lose our spiritual bearings.
But then there is the cross.
All it takes is one look at Calvary to regain our spiritual composure. One look at a crucified Christ, who for the joy set before him endured the cross and despised the shame, will put everything back in its rightful place. (Hebrews 12:2).
Go back to the cross when your heart is hard. Go back to the cross when you are guilty and condemned. Go back to the cross when you have failed and when you are ashamed. Go back to the cross when you have looked inward and rightly determined that there is nothing good in you. Go back to the cross.
The cross is the center of the universe. It is upon the cross of Christ that everything in heaven and on earth, both seen and unseen, is hinged upon.
As we pilgrims make our way to the celestial city may we remember that our path will only be as straight as our gaze is fixed upon Calvary.
“But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” (Galatians 6:14)
