An Encounter with the Cross

An encounter with the cross is intended to result in lifestyle change. Christians are to live a new Christ-centred life. That life is characterized by self-giving love, the quality most needed for citizenship. Christian freedom is not freedom from everything which might limit our choices. It is freedom from sin for the sake of service. It is not the life of licence, which so many call freedom today.
