Imagine, walking out of a local store late on a Saturday afternoon- depressed and seriously contemplating suicide. You have traveled the world and seen it all, but somewhere deep down there is a missing piece. You cannot seem to figure it out and have lost all hope. When suddenly, you look up ahead and see a cross, carried by a man who is followed by a group of people. Instantly, you know that your answer is there, standing right in front of you. An overwhelming sense of peace, joy, and restoration surrounds your heart; all the thoughts and feelings of suicide are gone. You are free!!
The scenario just described above is exactly what happened to a man as he saw the group carrying the cross across a parking lot. He was extremely depressed and ready to end his life. But, when he laid eyes on the cross, everything changed. He was instantly touched and discovered the reason to keep on living. The cross carries the solution to any problem or issue you may be facing. Jesus is the answer.
This is just one example of the many lives that were touched this past summer as Men Standing Positive carried the cross down the streets of St. Louis. On the corners, we stopped to pray and minister to multiple people at a time. Many received Christ, others received a Word of knowledge, and also signed up for hot sheets, in need of a church home and further assistance. Carry the Cross with MSP is a unique form of outreach as we have discovered the cross speaks for itself. Simply dragging the cross down the road, passersby usually stop directly and stare with a look of deep thought. Some cars honk as they go by and some people roll down their windows and spit at the cross. Regardless, seeing a group of people dragging a cross down the street is going to make you pause for a moment and think. This Fall and in 2015 we are very excited to take the cross into even more communities across the area.
