The Cross: The Basis For Reconciliation, Part 2 of 2 (Christians, Politics, And The Cross)

March 26, 2020

Many who seek justice call for “a level playing field” of opportunity. There is one place where the field is level, and that is at the foot of the cross of Christ. This cross is the only basis for reconciling people of different racial, ethnic, and economic backgrounds.

Many of today’s conflicts stem from deep-rooted racial or ethnic strife. It seems there is no human solution in our institutions, systems, and even homes, but there is a divine solution. There is a place of common ground for those who cannot stand the sight of each other.

On the day that Jesus died just outside of Jerusalem, many people passed by, as many do today, without realizing the eternal consequences of what was happening on that cruel Roman cross. It may seem unjust to our finite minds, but it was because of God’s love that Jesus suffered.

As we run life’s race, let us not forget that mercy is not getting what you deserve. God was not obligated to save any of us, and yet He has. When skeptics question God’s love, we must point them first to the cross where the Son of God suffered and died—for us.

These days, polling data is king. In the mainstream media, truth seems to lie with the majority opinion. But when it comes to the cross, the majority culture hates it and finds it offensive. So what should Christians do to demonstrate that the cross reveals God’s power and grace?

The cross is the centerpiece of history and the core of God’s redemptive agenda. Even before time, God planned the cross of Calvary in order to save people from every nation. But not everyone views the cross this way. As we will soon see, the contrast is startling.

The cross of Jesus was in God’s mind from eternity past. Its benefits extend to eternity yet to be. It is history’s great intersection—the place where God expressed His love to fallen mankind most clearly.

It is in the cross that we glory. But our eyes are often drawn to secondary things such as political advantage. Therefore, we need to have a clear view of how important the cross really is. Today, we will learn what God the Father thinks of His Son’s cross.

We need to learn one lesson well. Those who mix the cross and any nation’s flag do a disservice to both. For believers, keeping them distinct is the only way to fulfill our prime mission as ambassadors for Christ to a needy world.

When it comes to being citizens of both heaven and earth, believers running the race of life need to keep first things first. But how do the two kingdoms of church and state relate? Jesus commanded us to give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.

The cross of Christ is inherently in conflict with our culture, especially when the media flaunts immorality as normal. Politicians compete for position, while debating issues the Bible settled long ago. Thankfully, the cross can do what politics can’t.
