Centuries ago, Portuguese settlers built an enormous cathedral on the south coast of China, with a massive bronze cross on its front wall. When a typhoon destroyed that structure, only the wall and the large cross were left standing. Later in the area, a shipwreck took place in which only one man, Sir John Bowring, survived. Although disoriented, he was guided to land by that huge cross. Bowring has written a hymn which includes the words, “In the cross of Christ I glory, towering o’er the wrecks of time.” For all who are far from God, the Bible explains how Jesus’ cross makes the difference. “And you who were once alienated, yet now He has reconciled…having made peace through the blood of His cross.” Yes, the way of the cross leads home.
