To the Cross, part 2: Bring Your Cross

Following Jesus isn’t a spectator sport. Really following means being like Jesus. Just as Jesus willingly submits to the will of His Father, even when it is painful, we also must submit. Jesus’ call is for our whole life, every part, our understanding, our love, even our trash. We are called to submit our whole life to Him, to pick up our cross and follow Him, and He wants to set our whole life straight. Main Text: Mark 8:27-38

From Series: " Lent: To the Cross "

Lent is the season of preparation for Christ’s death on the cross for our sins and for the sins of the world. During Lent we follow Jesus as He makes His way back to Jerusalem, the Holy city, the center of the delivered promises of the covenant, the Land, and God’s presence with His people in His Temple. During Lent we see Jesus making things right, setting things in order, from healings to clearing out the Temple courtyard, God’s Kingdom comes dramatically in and through Jesus Christ. This is where God’s people reject His only Son, and where Jesus does His proper work of salvation, dieing for all sin. Lent ends with the wages of sin, death, but the death that pays for all sin for all time. But this is not the end, Easter is just 3 days away.
