LOGOS TRADING POST - HOLY LAND OLIVE WOOD CROSS FOR DESK

Our Debt & Our Redeemer

Colossians 2:14 says, “By canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross.” The cross was a tool of great pain and death when it was used in Rome, but Christ has made it into a glorious reminder of His victory and the cancelling of the debt we would have paid for our sin. Whatever shape it takes or whatever design is carved into it, the wooden cross is all about Him. We are happy to carry such a variety of olive wood crosses so that we can be a blessing and a reminder of His goodness to believers of all kinds.

Now, naturally, to understand the goodness of the redemption Jesus accomplished on the cross, it helps to understand the depth of what He has actually redeemed us from. Indeed, the sin of humanity is great, but He is greater.

The Depth of Our Debt

First, it is important to note that our sinfulness and fallenness is inescapable. No matter who you are or how moral you try to be, to be righteous and justified, Christ’s sacrifice on His wooden cross is necessary for you. Sin is not only a matter of what we do; it is in our blood. Biblically, we are all descended from Adam. Paul writes in Romans 5:12-14, “Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned - for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come.” At the surface, that can seem a bit cryptic, but the point is, because Adam sinned, all who descend from Him are sinners, no matter how much good they do. Perhaps no other passage of makes this clearer than Psalm 51:3-5, in which he writes, “For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment. Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.” Sin in us is inherent, so we must note that we all need redemption.

After all, doesn’t Paul write in Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”? To make matters more dire, he writes on in Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin in death.” Not only are all of us sinful inherently, but due to this sinfulness, we deserve nothing short of death. This is truly awful - a fate we deserve by our nature and have no means to escape on our own. What can be done? Well, John 3:3-4 chronicles, “Jesus answered him, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.’ Nicodemus said to him, ‘How can a man be born when he is old?’”

The Glory of His Wooden Cross & The Redemption Within

However, take heart! As we wrote above, the sin of humanity is great, but He is greater. John 3 continues, with Jesus saying in the classic John 3:16-17, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” It is not God’s desire that the world resign to death from sin. How is the world saved through the son? By the pure Son paying that debt of sin, the death we deserved. Colossians 1:19-22 says of Him, “For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile himself to all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross. And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him.”

Giving His Son was a high price for the Father to pay, but He did it willingly. Then, crucifixion on a wooden cross was a high price for the Son to pay, but He did it willingly as well - for our sakes. When you look at the shape of the cross, whether it is as grand as a stone one atop the highest church cathedral or it is as simple and profound as a Logos Trading Post Holy Land olive wood cross, remember just how grave our sin would be without it, but also take heart and remember just how high a price Jesus was willing to pay just for the chance that you would believe in Him and experience redemption - the cancellation of your sin debt.
