Which side of the cross are you on? The dark side of the cross is covered with sin that leads to death while the bright side of the cross is lit with God’s love and forgiveness that brings eternal life. In this message, we’ll look at Judas Iscariot, Lazarus, Martha, and Mary and notice which side of the cross they are on.
