Let’s take a look at some beautiful cross cremation urns to honor your loved one and their faith in Christ.
The Cross and a Christian’s Memorial
The cross is a symbol which powerfully represents the central message of Christianity, which is that
“Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.”
– I Corinthians 15:3-4
Christians have used the symbol of the cross, in forms both simple and ornate, to draw attention to the redemption that Jesus Christ provided through his death upon the two wooden beams on Calvary and his subsequent resurrection.
What was once, in Roman times, a symbol for a shameful death is now a nearly ubiquitous mark of hope, freedom, salvation, and new life.
In the work of redemption, God gives life, not by life, but by death. And if we rightly consider Christ upon the cross, we shall see our paradise out of paradise in the middle of hell, for out of his own cursed death he brings us life and eternal happiness.William Perkins, A Salve for a Sicke Man (in Edward A Hartman’s wonderful book Homeward Bound)
In his death, we receive life. When a loved one dies in faith, it is the cross that gives us hope to be reunited with them one day. So it is fitting that they should be memorialized with the symbol of the cross.
