This week we celebrate Ravi’s legacy through Take Five, as RZIM Africa adjunct speaker Hassan John turns our eyes to Jesus on the Cross and calls on an old Nigerian saying–“Though we have eyes, we do not see with them but with the mind”–to help us look deep within.
What did they miss? The centurion looked up and saw something different. On the cross, the body of a dying man, but beyond that was perhaps the most extraordinary revelation of the power and glory of the love of God.
When you look at the cross, what do you see? We have a saying here Nigeria that, “though we have eyes, we do not see with them but with the mind.”
And the big picture of eternity, [we] know clearly that looking up at that figure on the cross, encapsulates God’s redeeming and transforming love. It is a love available to all who believe and are available and want to share in this transforming experience.
Make it Personal
As Hassan John asks us, “when you look at the cross, what do you see?”
When the people around you look at the cross, what do you think they see? How might we help them see God’s transforming love in the cross?
