Where is our Cross and are we dying daily?
It felt as if Rachel Robinson was just singing this song to me as I listened just now.
God is such a Good God, and always a present help in the time of trouble.
We must ‘walk the walk’ and ‘talk the talk’ as they say in Christian circles.
It is necessary to be the ‘Real Deal’, though!
Also we should not want to be seen of men.
“For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.” Colossians 3:3.
There is too much ‘phoney baloney’ out there with people playing Church and pretending to be something they are not!
We are all in a process and surely haven’t arrived yet. Still shouldn’t we be growing up in The LORD, yet? Let’s just be what we are but not make excuses for our actions.
I saw an article right on HKP that touched me to the core by Jacob Awagah about the Cross: “Move Beyond THE CROSS? No Indeed! Rather, We BOAST In THE CROSS!“
Hope you will read.
Have we thrown our Cross away in this generation?
Must we not bear our Cross even of self- denial anymore?
Must Jesus bear the Cross alone and all the world go free, as the old song goes?
We need to look up, wise up and not get off the right path. It is a straight and narrow way.
The wrong path with the wrong gospel message will surely lead you astray!
There is no easy pathway, but the glorious True gospel message is alive and will breathe life into you!
Hope you will ponder and meditate on this message.
God bless you all.
“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name,” Philippians 2:5-9.
“But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.” John 2:24-25.
“I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.” Philippians 4:12.
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8.
