THE CENTRALITY OF THE CROSS
Let us turn first to Romans 4:25, to the declared fact of the atoning death of Christ. I was struck in lookinglately at Dr. Forsyth’s book on “The Cruciality of the Cross”, in which he says, “a true grasp of the Atonementmeets the age in its need of a center, of an authority, or a creative force, a guiding line and a final goal. ITMEETS OUR LACK OF A FIXED POINT”. This is exactly the case. We need a ‘fixed point’, which acts as acenter and a goal, and that ‘point’ in the history of the world—back to the ages before it, and forward to theages following it—is the Cross of Calvary. It is the central pivot of the dealing of God with the universe inevery aspect. It is because we Christians get away from the ‘fixed point’ of the Cross that we wander into allkinds of cul-de-sac places, where we lose the balance and right perspective of truth. At this, opening meetingwe will gather around this fixed point—the Cross of Christ—so that we may get to know more of the Christ of the Cross. From this the Holy Spirit will enable us to open out other aspects of truth in their relationship to theCross.
