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.

God, the Ultimate Endurance Athlete

The finish line is His why, and His finish line for us is when we surrender and declare Jesus as Lord with our mind, body, and spirit.  

Contentment versus Black Friday

I have always thought that Black Friday was a strange day. On Thursday, we give thanks for what we have, and on the next day we rush to acquire more! 

You Can’t Always Get What You Want

The question is do we trust God to give us what we need, or do we think we know better?
