Consider the following:
In looking at the crucifix, consider meditating on the suffering of Jesus. The crowning of thorns and the wounds on his head reflects the suffering he bore because of what we place in our head. The decisions to rebel against God.
His right hand (wrist) nailed to the cross reflects the things we did that caused sin, His left hand (wrist) nailed to the cross reflects the things we failed to do.
Study the feet, sometimes you will see a crucifix with the left over right, sometimes we might see the feet fastened separately.
Either way, this reflects our choosing to walk a wrong path, a rabbit trail.
Consider the lance through the heart, how the Sacred Heart of Jesus loves us all so much, yet we have hardened our hearts against him choosing to sin. There is so much we can meditate on using the crucifix.
This is the motivation forDeepertruth as we want to equip people to stand up for the truth. To “hold unwavering to our confession that gives us hope, for he who made the promise is trustworthy (Hebrews 10:23)”.
Of the Catholic Church, Jesus says, “Whoever listens to you listens to me. Whoever rejects you rejects me. And whoever rejects me rejects the one who sent me” (Luke 10:16). Jesus warns that if we do not listen to His Church, but reject the teaching of the Church, you not only reject Jesus, but also the Lord who made His promise to Solomon (1 Kings 9:3).
