The Cross

The icon of a cross adorns the steeple of churches worldwide; it is portrayed in works of art, worn on ecclesiastical clothing, stamped on Bibles and hymnals, and is the most recognized symbol of Christianity. Being nailed to a wooden cross was used to execute a criminal in a slow, degrading, and painful death.  Why then do we hold up the cross as a sacred emblem of our faith?   Because if you KNOW Christ, it is personal!

In the old rugged cross
Stained with blood so divine
A wondrous beauty I see
For twas on that old cross
Jesus suffered and died
To pardon and sanctify me

Hebrews 9: 13-14, "For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:  How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?"

Isaiah 55: 10-11 (KJV)

The prophet Isaiah declares a promise to us in the scriptures that the word of the Lord shall not return void.  Isaiah 55: 10-11 states, “For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”  In the New Testament, the apostle Paul references this in similar fashion about sowing the seed and letting God give the increase.

The Lord has reassured me with this scripture this week that calls for us to be a mouth piece for him and to let the Lord do the rest. I sometimes find myself sometime worrying about the results of my efforts, when all I should be asking myself is the message going out.  You may never see the results of your efforts for the Lord, but the scripture says it will not return void.  I know God has a purpose for everything we do and say for Him. My prayer this week is that I continue to be a willing vessel for him and continue to seek out his purpose and plan he has for me.

Ephesians 4:1-3 (KJV)

In today’s society, a prison, or the thought of being a prisoner, is not something for which we strive.  Being imprisoned means having your freedoms stripped away from you and your life minimized to strict guidelines and duties. In secular terms, a prisoner is confined, limited, and deprived of freedom against their will. In the Bible, Apostle Paul proclaims to the people at Ephesus that he is prisoner of the Lord and to walk worth of the vocation from which he is called. Apostle Paul speaks to them as a spiritual imprisonment to the Lord. Though far from being stripped of his freedom, Paul completely surrenders to the Lord and focuses strictly on the Lord’s direction.

Like Apostle Paul, when we get sanctified we become prisoners to Jesus Christ and servants to righteousness. He equips us with His spirit, if we yield to His direction for our lives. Only when we willingly yield our lives to the Lord, we are no longer slaves to Satan, and can gain all the Lord has to offer. I ask you this week, are you a prisoner to Jesus Christ? Have you made a full consecration to Him? Have you died to self and does His spirit rein in your life? I pray you do.

Ephesians 4:1-3 states, “I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, with all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”

Romans 8:28 (KJV)

JESUS SEES THE WHOLE PICTURE ! All people need is a little hope in whatever situation they are in.  Jesus provides peace, happiness, direction, love, and gives hope in everything! 

Romans 8:28 states, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.”

What gift are you giving?

In the Christmas story, the wisemen bring gifts to the Christ child.  These gifts were of significant value and fit for a king or ruler of that day. As tradition continues, most people will exchange gifts with family and friends, expressing their love and appreciation for their relationships.  As we move through this Christmas week and into the new year, take stock as to what gifts we are presenting Jesus.  Have you consecrated your life to him?  Is he receiving all of your talents?   

Isaiah 9:6 "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."

Merry Christmas and God Bless!!
