Following Him

April 12, 2020

“And they compelled a passerby, Simon of Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to carry his cross. And they brought him to the place called Golgotha (which means Place of a Skull).”

— Mark 15:21-22 ENGLISH STANDARD VERSION

We carry our cross and follow Jesus. The path we take following Him may lead us to Golgotha. But, at the Place of a Skull is where our following ends and His departure starts. Our following ends at the point where our sin meets His grace. At the crucifixion. Our place on the cross is substituted with Jesus. The results of our following and His death? Is His mercy, His forgiveness, His resurrection.

Tis the Season

While I’ve always felt like a giver of awesome gifts, I pale in comparison to the gifts God gives.

In a Relationship

It’s simple, God wants a relationship with us, Jesus died to enable that relationship, Jesus knocks at our door, and all we have to do is answer.
