Lead Others To The Cross
“in His own body on the tree, that we . . . might live for righteousness” 1 Peter 2:24
What does the cross mean to you.?
Have you seen the movie Do You Believe.? If I was asked if I believed in the cross, I would say yes. Jesus died on the cross as a sacrifice for all sin and resurrected from the dead. If we go deeper the bible states in James 2:17 “Faith by itself, if not accompanied by action is dead,” The challenge is to not only believe in the death of Jesus but to live out our faith in the cross through our actions. If we truly believe that Christ died on the cross to cover our sins so that we may have eternal life, we also must live that belief out in our daily lives. Letting everything we do lead others to the cross.
We are commissioned by God to spread the good news of Jesus to the world, to make a difference in the world around us.
Start living lives of action!
Allow people to see Jesus through the actions you display. Step out of your comfort zone, isn’t that what Jesus did when He went to the cross for us..? He was called by his Father to act, the same way we are called to act. Jesus obeyed, so must we! We are Christ’s ambassadors; He is counting on us. There is no greater joy than watching firsthand someone experience the love of Christ for the first time.
Let’s help lead others to the Cross!
When my time comes to meet the Lord, I hope that He will look me in the eye and say, “Well done, good and faithful servant!” -Matthew 25:23
Wouldn’t that be amazing! I want to live a life that will make a difference in the world. I want to be a part of the masterpiece God is painting, one of the brush strokes. Don’t you.?
There is no better time than now to start living out our faith. If you are having a hard time knowing where to start. Simply ask God to lead you to the cross. He will meet you there and His Holy Spirit will show you the way.
Let everything you do lead others to the cross.
“For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe.” - 1 Corinthians 1:21
