You have most likely heard the phrase “The crux of the matter”. The word “crux” comes from old Latin, and simply means cross. And so that term has become associated with a critical juncture or point in time. The cross of Christ is that critical juncture. A time in history where everything changed. In this sermon, we will see that as the apostle Paul ends his letter, he too gets down to “the crux of the matter” and that is the cross of Christ.
