“At the foot of the Cross” – A Good Friday devotional

A Web walk each day with Peggie through a home called Peggie’s Place! . . . .

They gathered at the Cross that day–the women who loved Him; the guards who stole from Him; the crowd who watched Him–they were all there, to worship, to weep, to mock, to scorn–and to see! They were rich and poor; wise and unlearned; tall and thin, short and plump; well-dressed and in rags–they were all there…at the foot of the Cross.

We gather at the Cross today too–the people who love Him; the wicked who hate him; the indifferent who pass by Him. We’re rich and poor; wise and unlearned; tall and thin, short and plump; we’re well-dressed or in well-worn garments–we are all there…and level…at the foot of the Cross.

In society, education, government and the marketplace, it is not so! In business, law, medicine and the workplace, it is not so! There are ranks and orders, castes and divides–and like it or not, we are often worlds apart. No meeting ground, no common ground…until…

We all arrive at the Cross–and there we find a different kind of ground. It’s holy ground. It’s level ground. We stand in awe, in reverence, in redemption, in the garments of His righteousness–OR we stand in mockery, in madness, in mankind’s resistance and rejection, in the filthy rags of the unredeemed–but we’re all there, all on the same level…at the foot of the Cross.

I want to stay there–to cling to that old rugged Cross; to bow and to adore the One who hangs there for me. I’m in the crowd…but yet I stand alone. I am one unique person, unlike any other in that crowd–and He sees me; He knows me; He loves me. I behold–and I bow–low…at the foot of the Cross!

Read God’s Word: Bible Gateway

Prayer: “Lord, I mingle with the crowd who love You today; but I stand alone, unworthy, in Your holy presence, except by the Blood of Your Cross. I bow in adoration–and You see me there, Lord; You know me and I am glad. I thank You, my Lord, In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
