When I Survey the Wondrous Cross, I See the Obedience of Christ

What do you see when you look at the cross? A simple outline of a body hanging on the cross? A cross made from rough pieces of wood? The people gathered around the cross, watching with curiosity as the events unfold? When I take time to adequately survey the cross of Christ, I see the obedience of Christ. I also see how Christ’s obedience is an example for me.
