"In a loud voice they sang: "Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise! Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing: "To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!" Rev 5:13,14
"And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death- even death on a CROSS!"
"For the message of the CROSS is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."
1 Cor 1:18
"May I never boast except in the CROSS of our Lord... Jesus Christ..."
