Ministry PictureThere By Faith is a blog by Eric Douglas. Eric is a follower of Jesus, husband, father, pastor, teacher, homeschool dad, and soccer coach. The goal of this weekly blog is to help you follow Jesus.

It is only at the cross of Jesus Christ that this world makes sense. It is only at the cross of Jesus Christ that we truly see love, justice, wrath, and amazing grace all wrapped into one. It is only at the cross that sinners are rescued. Therefore, it is there, at the cross, and by faith in Jesus Christ that we receive our sight. The cross is our starting point that allows us to see the world without blinders. And it was there that Jesus Christ took the place of all who turn from sin and trust in Him.

Alas! and did my Savior bleed?

And did my Sov’reign die?

Would He devote that sacred head

For such a worm as I?

At the cross, at the cross,

Where I first saw the light,

And the burden of my heart rolled away –

It was THERE BY FAITH I received my sight,

And now I am happy all the day.

From “At the Cross” by Isaac Watts and Ralph E. Hudson
