So Many Owed So Much to One

During World War II’s Battle of Britain, the Royal Air Force’s courageous defense of the skies over Britain foiled Hitler’s plans for an invasion of the British Isles. Afterward, Prime Minister Winston Churchill said in the House of Commons, “Never in the history of mankind have so many owed so much to so few.”

But when we think of the cross of Christ, and the person who died on it, what we say is: Never if the history of the universe has mankind owed so much to One.
