9 Quotes We Love About the Cross That Fill Our Hearts With Gratitude

bible quotes about the cross

The language of our human tongue is rendered inadequate when it comes to our expression of gratitude to God and the Cross upon which His Son Jesus was crucified.

Yet still, incontinued observance of Holy Week, we would like to spend a few moments today to bring to you quotes from the Bible about the cross that fill our hearts with gratitude.

As we reflect and meditate on what the Cross really mean for us, join with me and let’s offer our heartfelt gratitude to God as we present ourselves as a living sacrifice unto Him.

1.)  And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha. ~ John 19:17 KJB

2.)  For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with words of eloquent wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power. 18.For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. ~ 1 Corithians 1:17-18 ESV

3.)  Dear brothers and sisters, if I were still preaching that you must be circumcised—as some say I do—why am I still being persecuted? If I were no longer preaching salvation through the cross of Christ, no one would be offended. ~ Galatians 5:11 NLT

4.)  May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. ~ Galatians 6:14 NIV

5.)  And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. ~ Philippians 2:8

6.)  For I have told you often before, and I say it again with tears in my eyes, that there are many whose conduct shows they are really enemies of the cross of Christ. ~ Philippians 3;18 NLT

7.)  And through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross. ~ Colossians 1:20 NLT

8.)  He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.~ Colossians 2:14 NLT

9.)  Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame,and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. ~ Hebrews 12:2 NIV
