Pâques: Cross Equals Heart/† = ♥
(source Hillsong collected)
And He said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” Mark 16:15 ESV
The symbols † = ♥ (cross equals love) is symbolic of the true meaning of Easter : Jesus.
The last 4 years we’ve used the symbols to brand our Easter services and every year I feel like God breathes upon this simple concept and it takes it to a new level of freshness. I truly believe that God is in the detail and He can use the simplest things (such as this design) to draw the unsaved to Him.
This year, my team (plus help from a few hundred college students – THANKYOU) have worked around the clock to prepare for the weekend of the 24th-25th March 2012, as we give everyone at Hillsong Church a ‘cross equals love’ bag – 30,000 bags to be exact.
In the bag is 5-10 ‘cross equals love’ cards, which we are praying over as we encourage everyone in our church to invite 5-10 people to each of our Easter services. A lot of people are even using these cards to invite people with an act of love – eg; Giving someone flowers, mowing a neighbour’s lawn, paying for someone’s coffee or give them a stranger your umbrella on a rainy day.
It all comes down to two main things:
1. First and foremost: making JESUS known.
2. Seeing the unsaved in church this Easter.
And in the middle of that – GOD DOES SOMETHING SUPERNATURAL!
“How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?” Romans 10:14 NIV
