Christ shed His perfect blood on the cross to atone for mankind's sins, and to redeem and forgive sinners (Col. 1:14). Additionally, His atoning death released divine grace for overcoming victory over all sin, for all who will follow Him. Christ commanded, "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." (Matt. 16:24; Heb. 4:14-16) The cross was an execution instrument the Savior bled upon. When taken up by believers, the cross is an instrument of death to the sinful nature and defiling sins of the body. The Father raises up those that are bowed down low in humility, that His glory and power might triumph in victory in the disciple's daily personal life (Mk. 7:20-23; 2 Cor. 4:10-12, 14; Gal. 2:20; 6:14).
