THE WEIGHT OF THE CROSS
When a group of churches advertised their Easter celebration, no reference was made to the cross. The omission was deliberate. One church official explained, "The cross carries too much cultural baggage."
The true weight of the cross is not in its cultural baggage; it's in the sin that it bore through Christ for us all.

SIN OF OMISSION
We see sad events transpiring today: Mothers smothering children and fathers shaking babies. But if one did not do this and if they said, "I didnít strike the baby, I just never fed the baby, I never changed a diaper. I never placed a warm blanket over the baby. I didnít DO anything wrong." Would you buy the argument? A thousand times, no! Nor will God excuse our sins of omission.
The Bible says that we can miss Godís mark of perfection with our thoughts, words, or deeds. In commission (what weíve done wrong) and omission (what we ought to have done right). Imagine if youíve only sinned 10, no 5, no just 3x per day in though, word and deed (commission and/or omission). Youíd be a walking angel. But thatís 1,000 sins per year. Think of your age right now, multiply that by 1000. Thatís a lot of sin. What would happen to an habitual offender in a criminal court with that kind of a record?
