This is a week of remembrance for the world…it is also a time of great celebration! It marks a great loss, an even greater gain and immeasurable change.
There are certain games and competitions in the life of an athlete that result in change. Often these crossroads involve a loss which, in turn, creates a new direction and ultimately leads to a brighter and more effective future.
This week we look at the cross - a symbol of change…
ON IT- the Son of God was put to death as the ultimate sacrifice for the sin of all…past, present and future.
Christ died for our sins… 1 Corinthians 15:3b NIV
WITH IT – the arms of Christ hung in power and raised up in praise and victory over sin and death wiping out defeat.
O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? Corinthians 15:55 NLT
BY IT – a new and purposeful future was ushered in for those who put their trust in the One who hung on it…we are can count on being changed into His image.
So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image. 2 Corinthians 3:18 NLT
BECAUSE OF IT - we are promised and eternal home with Christ when our days on this earth are over.
In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. John 14:2 KJV
THE CROSS CHANGES EVERYTHING!
