The Crux Of The Matter

Crucify Him!

The Crux.  The Cross.

That was the cry. The general consensus. The people wanted their way. Politics, religion, simple mob frenzy.

Mark 15:13 (AMP) - "And they shouted back again, Crucify Him!"

They got their way.

Thank God.

Because they crucified Jesus a new cry, a new intent, a new petition to God is able to be shouted.

"Crucify ME!"

All that is ever going to be done to provide for our spiritual nourishment has already been done. There are no more saviors, no more sacrifices.  Jesus is it.

The question now is what are we going to do with it?

Can't get angry at God anymore. There's nothing to demand. Can't kill His Son again.

The human race is out of options. We can only strike out at each other now.


...Crucify Me!

No, not actually, with wood and nails and blood and stuff.

By accepting, instead of kicking against, what Jesus did for us.

When we do that it becomes..."I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live" (Gal. 2:20).

He died so that we could die too. Die to our old person. The way we were. Sinful. Useless. Posioned. Corrupt.

Where we become resurrected with Him also. Alive. Perfected. Forgiven. Righteous.

What did you think He was doing bleeding out on that piece of wood?

He was making a way for you.

Why not take it?

Keepin' it Real,

Pastor Kevin <><
