GIBC did not use any ministry money to build this cross. Not a dime. We could never afford to build something like this! The cost of the construction of this cross was paid by someone else. For this we are thankful.
It reminds us of something else…
It reminds us that we did not pay the debt owed for our sins. The Bible teaches we cannot pay for our sins, because we cannot be perfect. Thankfully, it is by GRACE we have been saved, and our debt has been paid. The cost of our sins has been paid by someone else, when He died upon a cross. His name is Jesus.
We believe, we see this cross, and we are thankful.
