The Cross

The cross has been thought of by many as a symbol for Christianity. It might also represent the two most important commandments. The gospel has a vertical as well as horizontal direction. The cross also has its two parts. The vertical points from the earth up to God. It represents the first and great commandant and reminds us to do our duty to our heavenly father. The horizontal bar reaches out toward our fellow men and represents the second great commandment. The prophet has said that when we are in the service of our fellow men, we are also in the service of God. Next only to love for his Father, the life of Jesus is characterized by his service to men. Sterling W. Sills
