THE FRUITS OF THE WOOD OF THE CROSS.

THE FRUITS OF THE WOOD OF THE CROSS

Because Christ humbled himself and became obedient to the death and death on the Cross (Phil 2: 8), the Cross becomes the wood of obedience which enlightens the mind, strengthens the heart, and enables us to participate in the fruit of eternal life. The fruit of obedience makes the fruit of disobedience disappear The sinful fruit causes our separation from God, distance from the tree of life, and subjection to the condemnatory sentence that says: “you will return to the land from which you were formed “(Gen 3:19) The fruit of obedience, on the other hand, provides familiarity with God, fulfilling these words of Christ: When I am lifted up, I will draw everyone to Me (Jn 12: 32) This promise is truly very appealing “(St. German of Constantinople, On the Adoration of the Cross).
