The Cross in the Flag – May 3

The Olympics in Tokyo are scheduled for this summer. Countries from all over the world will be competing and there will be a sea of flags waving. Have you ever noticed that a number of countries around the world have a cross pictured in their flags? It is quite interesting when a person ponders what the cross was. During the days of the Roman Empire, the cross was a means of torturous and cruel execution that was so vile that no Roman citizen was allowed to executed in such a manner. Only individuals from other nations. What changed the view of the cross over the years? The answer is not found in the cross itself but in a particular execution, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus who provided a payment for our sin which makes it possible to have our sins forgiven before God. 2 Corinthians 5:21 reads, “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
