Calvary

Jesus on the crossThere are a couple of words in the English language that are very similar—cavalry and Calvary. These words are often mistakenly used for one another, even though they have very different meanings.

Cavalry is a group of soldiers. In Western movies, the cavalry often rides in at the last possible moment and saves people who are in danger.

Calvary, of course, is the hill outside of Jerusalem where Jesus Christ laid down his life to pay for the sins of all people.

Cavalry…Calvary…Either way, salvation is available. The cavalry can save you in this life. What Jesus did on Calvary can save your soul forever!

“And when they had come to the place called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the criminals, one on the right hand and the other on the left.”—Luke 23:33 (NKJV).
