A sign of torture, pain, malice, and hatred. A sign to be feared and despised. The Cross was used to inflict horrors in the heart - Something to run away from. A sign to avoid. But now the Cross represents something Supernatural: Eternal life, a place of direction, strength, and hope. Jesus changed the natural meaning of the Cross by His death, burial and resurrection. That is why we can now live beyond the natural, and live the Supernatural life.
