The Road through Calvary brings Truth and Freedom

The Road through Calvary brings Truth and Freedom

Who do you enjoy being with the most?
Those who know and accept the real you, failures and all?
Or those you have to pretend around?

To be honest, I enjoy being around the ones who know the real me, because pretending is an exhausting waste of your life. It’s living a lie.

Now imagine this, the God who knows us, the real us, failures and all, still chose to send Jesus to die for us. Calvary wasn’t about perfect people, but about a perfect God and His love for imperfect us! This love (truth) set us free.

King, Redeemer, Friend

This side of eternity we’ll never understand exactly what happens when God saves us. His Spirit moves mightily in our hearts – allows us to say yes to him as King, Redeemer and Friend.

God reaches down in grace that lets us really see ourselves – and really see him – and really see the truth. Yep – even if the truth hurts

‘God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.’ Ephesians 2:8-9 (check it here – http://bit.ly/1gpUIbd)

Wow. Reason enough to praise God today?

15 Year Old Jesus?

What would Jesus be like as a 15-year old at your school? Here are some ideas from the gospels: people loved hanging out with him cos he never made them feel small; he made people who abused their power go crazy cos he wouldn’t play by their rules; he showed great love for everyone he met; he was willing to give up everything for what he believed in; he didn’t care much about his reputation.

What was Jesus’ secret? He told us in John 17v3 – his relationship with his Father. You have the same heavenly Father. Could that truth begin to release you to be a bit more like Jesus in your school today?

Jesus – King on a Cross

‘One of the criminals hanging alongside cursed him: Some Messiah you are! Save yourself! Save us! But the other one made him shut up: Have you no fear of God? You’re getting the same as him. We deserve this, but not him – he did nothing to deserve this.’ (Luke 23v39-41)

The day Jesus died, two men were executed alongside him. Only one of them truly understood that Jesus was an innocent man dying an undeserved death. Even though Jesus was dying an undignified death next to him, he called him King.

Knowing who Jesus really is might be the most important thing anyone can discover. Who is He to you?
