The Gospel of an Occupied Cross

If you lived during the time when Rome used crucifixion as a means of execution, the sound of nailing a person to the cross was unmistakable. You could never un-hear or un-know it. It’s the sound of having been punished for your sins. However, for those of us who know Jesus, we know our cross and the penalty for our sin has been taken away. We know the good news of an occupied cross.
