The Cross Athwart The Sky by Robert Golladay

“Lent stands for something specific. It tells the story of God’s grace and how it was specifically shown. It tells the story of redemption and how it was accomplished… Before Christ Jesus can be a guide and example He must be a Redeemer, a Savior. And Lent is the appropriate time of all times for presenting this truth.”

“The biggest thing in the Christian religion is not what man does for God, but what God has done, and does, for man. It is a great thing for man to be in quest of God; it is vastly more important that God is continually in quest of man. And God’s quest for man reached its climax in the Savior’s passion. This is the story, and the only story, to be told during Lent. It is an old story, but it is ever new. And it is going to be in place as long as there are men and women to be saved, who want to be saved.” — Robert Golladay
