Inspired by . . . the dance of the cross

I love the romantic expression of this verse. It's given me a lightness to my steps this week as I've pondered the words and the deeper meaning.

In my spirit, my arms lift and my knees bend into the graceful stance of a ballerina. The words dance. Mercy and truth embrace, then glide away from each other. They return as righteousness and peace . . . and kiss.

The dancers fade.  The cross remains.

This is the dance of the cross.

God's mercy, withholding from us what we deserve, embraces Truth: Jesus Christ.
Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (Joh 14:6)
Christ is our righteousness. For we have none of our own.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Rom 3:23)
God accepts Jesus' righteousness as our own and as a result, we have peace with Him. [click to tweet]
For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that He might bring us to God, being but to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit. (1Pet 3:18)
This is the dance of the cross.

It is both a proclamation and an invitation.

Won't you join the dance?
