The Road through Calvary leads to the death of me.

The Road through Calvary leads to the death of me.

Selfies! Me! My world! My life! They’re everywhere right? Messages that life is about us. CS Lewis says, “We are far too easily pleased by the perishing world and when we seek self for answers.”

What a small outlook on life, and very different to what Jesus says.
Read Romans 6:8-11 (http://bit.ly/2X9BNJH)

In the Kingdom, living is dying to self. Letting go of selfish ambition and seeking God’s will for our lives. Jesus was obedient to the point of death. Jesus, through whom we get true life, died so that we could truly live.

Calvary leads to the death of sin in us.

The Road through Calvary removes our shame.

The Road through Calvary removes our shame.

In the Torah (The law of God as revealed to Moses and recorded in the first 5 books of the Bible), Moses writes that it’s a shameful thing for a man to hang on a tree (See Deuteronomy 21:22-23).

Jesus however did it to take our shame away. Jesus endured public shame in order to free us from whatever private shame we may have. Giving it all to Him. Today as we remember Calvary and what Jesus did for us on the cross, be reminded that in Him we don’t have to be ashamed, because the power of Christ is at work in us.

The Road through Calvary strengthens faith.

The Road through Calvary strengthens faith.

As Jesus was in the tomb it all seemed lost. People didn’t realize that the story wasn’t over.
Sometimes we won’t see, comprehend or understand what God is doing. We can be so overwhelmed by the situation we’re in and forget that God is still in control and that He hasn’t stepped away, even though it may seem like it.

Read Isaiah 26:3 (http://bit.ly/29bviS2)

Be encouraged that even in the silence and the stillness God is still at work.
As we continue to trust Him, He strengthens our faith and gives us peace.

The Road through Calvary calls us to Trust

The Road through Calvary calls us to Trust

Have you ever been in a difficult situation?
Who hasn’t right. Failed an exam or had to give someone bad news?
We have all been in bad and uncomfortable situations. I find that in those situations, trusting God is more helpful than knowing how everything is going to turn out.

Read Luke 23:46-47 (http://bit.ly/2X7ZNwO)

In this passage of scripture Jesus is on the cross and He surrenders His Spirit to God. Despite hanging on the cross, He still trusts God. This has everything to do with who God is. As Jesus trusted God, we are called to trust Him too.
