What happened on the CROSS?
With regards to the devil, it was a Conquest.
With regards to the world, it was a Reconciliation.

Track Name: Session Two: Testimony
We sometimes think that only the extraordinary and unusual stories qualify as ‘real testimonies’. Paul’s Damascus Road conversion (Acts 9:1-19; Acts 22:1-22; Acts 26:1-29) is in this category. But just as important are the ‘Emmaus Road’ conversions (Luke 24:13-35) where people’s hearts are gradually opened as they encounter Jesus through the ordinary rhythms of Christian discipleship: the Scriptures (24:27,32) and the breaking of bread (24:30-31,35). Perhaps Luke has deliberately left Cleopas’s companion anonymous because he – and all Christians! – can identify with this account!

Then Jesus called the crowd to Him along with His disciples, and He told them, "If anyone wants to come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me.” Mark 8:34
Luke emphasises that this is not just a one-off event, but a daily task and a continual process: 'Then Jesus said to all of them, "If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me.' Luke 9:23
