Countercultural Cross

The cross of Christ stands
as a mystery because it is foreign
to everything we exalt —
self over principle,
power over meekness,
the quick fix over the long haul,
cover-up over confession,
escapism over confrontation,
comfort over sacrifice,
feeling over commitment,
legality over justice,
the body over the spirit,
anger over forgiveness,
man over God.

–Ravi Zacharias

Unlimited access

There are no unique postures and times and limitations that restrict our access to God. My relationship with God is intimate and personal.

The Christian does not go to the temple to worship.
The Christian takes the temple with him or her.

Jesus lifts us beyond the building and pays the human body the highest compliment by making it His dwelling place, the place where He meets with us.

–Ravi Zacharias
Jesus Among Other Gods

Living in the analogy

Everything I experience and feel
before I arrive at that heavenly home
amounts to mere analogy.
Everything in my heavenly home
is consummate expression.

–Ravi Zacharias
