Or was Egypt

Passover: to be protected
through the blood
of the Lamb.
The Angel of Death was loosed. And Death is the wages of our sins.
He took the first born. All of the first born. We are all the first born.
When I began to walk around the cross I saw that there was something. And at first I thought it was only one thing. At first I did not know what it was, and so I tried to walk around the cross. As I saw it from all those different sides I began to see that is so many different things. I saw first that it is a sacrifice. I saw that and I felt sad. Guilty. And I know that I am sad and guilty. But it did not connect with me. Then I saw that the cross is Passover made new. Something stirred in me then. I began to wonder what else The Cross could mean. I began to laugh at the idea that there might be just one way to express what the cross means. I began to laugh at the idea that there might be a way, at all, to fully unravel the fullness and the mystery of the cross. And I am afraid that I am like an architect of the tower of babel. I wonder if it is only fallenness that leads me to construct these thoughts, to create these things, whatever they are, as I try to grasp the full ness of Jesus and what his cross means. But is there an alternative? Can I worship Him without knowing him? And this knowing, could it be constructed of something much deeper than only these words?
