Have you ever seen one of these ? It’s called ” The Cross In My Pocket”.
Someone made me this many many years ago and I have treasured it since I got it! Its a small piece of plastic with a woven cross onto it ; but it also has a pocket in the back and a paper in that pocket.
On the paper it says: ” I carry a cross in my pocket , a simple reminder to me; of the fact that I am a Christian , no matter where I may be.
This little cross is not magic , nor is it a good luck charm; it’s simply an understanding between my savior and me.
When I put my hand in my pocket to bring out a coin or a key, the cross is there to remind me of the price he paid for me.
It reminds me too, to be thankful for my blessings day by day and to strive to serve Him better in all that I do and say.
It’s also a daily reminder of the peace and comfort I share, with all who know my master and give themselves to His care.
So, I carry a cross in my pocket , reminding no one but me, that JESUS CHRIST is Lord of my life if only ill let Him be.”
Isn’t that cool? I really like my cross ! I see it every single day- I have placed it at a place where I go every day and as soon as I look at it ; it reminds me of all that Jesus did for me on the cross , so long ago. I am thankful for His blood that washes away all my sins, I am thankful for all that He went through so that I could be forgiven and set free!
He did that for all of us ; not just me, and I believe He would do it again ; even if it was just for one of us! because He loves us, He loves me and He loves you.
Do you love Jesus? Do you remember the cross and all that means? Its not just a story to tell at Easter, no , its so much more!.
I was sharing with some people on Sunday and this week how , I know we all have stuff we carry – junk stuff. Well, every day I go to the foot of the Cross and I lay all my baggage there- and how one drop of Jesus blood cleanses it like that!!! Just one drop. Think about that.
Remember the cross today. If you have junk your carrying ; go to the foot of the cross and leave it there. Just dump the junk. His blood cleanses it all. You don’t have to be carrying around a heavy burden! Not at all!
Remember He is Risen ! Remember He lives in you and He lives in me; if you have invited Him into your heart.
I am grateful for the cross.
