We Christians like to talk about THE cross a lot. That's good but we often forget there were two other crosses on that day as well. They are not insignificant as the following poem reveals:
Three crosses on a lonely hill,
a thief on either side,
and, in between, the Son of God
How wide the gulf....how wide.
yet one thief spanned it with the words
"oh, Lord, remember me!!"
The other scoffed and turned aside
To lost eternity.
Forsaken is the hilltop now,
And all the crosses gone,
But in believing hearts of men
the center cross lives on.
And still, as when these sentinels
First met earth's wondering view
the presence of the Lord divides....
upon which side are YOU??? ~ Unknown
