Resurrection Succeeds the Cross

Post  fennywest on Tue 15 Jun 2010, 10:48 am



The cross may not be palatable
But for a child of God, it is inevitable
On the cross we are meant to die daily
And not abandon it, but face it bravely.

May we face our cross with dignity,
Surrendering ourselves with humility
May we find and fulfill our purpose,
Regardless of the forces that oppose.

We may feel abandoned on the cross
But God has not really abandoned us.
As we suffer on the cross of our life
Let us remember that coming New Life:

Resurrection!



Let us Pray:

Father, I thank for Your word that is spirit and life, a light unto our path and lamp unto our feet.

I thank you that there is a purpose to my life like it was for my Saviour. Help me to find that purpose and face it with determination regardless of the obstacles and the cross involved. O that I will surrender to Your will and die with dignity on my cross as to be more like Jesus daily.

Remind me, O Lord, as I face my cross and die daily that I am not abandoned, even I feel like it, and that resurrection will come, help will come from unexpected quarters; weeping may endure for the night but joy is coming in the morning.


Luke23:44-24:3

I like how you say it here Fenny, we have no choice. To follow in the masters
footsteps, crucifixion is part and parcel of the walk. Blessings.
