Prison Edition A Closer Look at the Finality of the Cross
The Dividing Line
of Human History
The French philosopher, Pascal, stated, “There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God the Creator, made known through Jesus Christ.” Man, however, has sought to fill this vacuum through various ways: financial success, social status, education, sexual encounters, friends, marriage and children, and occupation. Regardless of man’s success in these endeavors, he still finds himself empty. H.G. Wells, famous historian and philosopher, at the age of 61 said, “I have no peace. All life is at the end of the tether.” The poet Byron said, “My days are in the yellow leaf, the flowers and fruits of life are gone, the worm and the canker and the grief are min alone.”
Man has even turned to religion and social reform to fill the void. The great Hindu leader, Mahatma Gandhi, with his undying and sacrificial devotion to his religion, stated in his autobiography: “It is a constant torture to me that I am still so far from Him whom I know to be my very life and being. I know it is my own wretchedness and wickedness that keeps me from Him.” Even religion is not enough.
The vacuum Pascal describes is a basic need in the heart of every man to know God, to experience His forgiveness, to be freed from the bondage of guilt, and to know that he has been totally accepted by God. Only God can meet this need, and He does so through His Son, Jesus Christ. Through His death on the cross, Jesus Christ demonstrated the love of God for you and me and ushered in a brand new covenant whereby we can experience forgiveness and have new life. It is because of this that we take a closer look at the finality of the cross.
