Image of the Cross

A friend told me about a remarkable incident that took place at the Perth Commonwealth Games years ago. A member of the high diving team decided to practice one night. He climbed to the very highest diving board, stood on the edge with his arms outstretched, and was about to launch himself into space when the full moon re-appeared from behind a cloud and threw his shadow down onto the floor of the pool in the form of a cross. He then realised there was no water in the pool. It had been drained for cleaning. He’d been a couple of seconds away from death, but his own shadow, reflected in the image of a cross had saved him.
For twenty centuries that image of the Cross has shown people the way to life. No wonder the Bible refers to it as ‘the power of God unto salvation.’
