“Faith and the cross are inseparable: the cross is the shrine of faith, and faith is the light of the cross.” – Madame Guyon
The cross is where faith leads us, and faith is where the cross points us. We have been crucified with Christ (cross), therefore we now live by faith in Christ (faith). His way is now our way; His life is now our life. Without the cross, we cannot have faith. Without faith, we cannot endure the cross. And the good news is that it is Christ’s faith (His life, remember?) and His cross (His completed work).
