Near The Cross
Luke 9:23 (Part of the Revival 2018 series).

How near are you to the cross? God doesn't want you to view the cross from afar. He wants you to be within touching distance.

What do we see when we are near the cross?

  • Supplication Luke 22:40-44, If praying is good enough for our savior then it's good enough for us. If we get close to the cross we will pray like we are suppose to. Prayer is not to inform God something of something. The purpose of prayer is relationship. We pray to work against temptation. Did you know that you won't get to the cross by accident? It's a deliberate decision that's made that you want to get closer. Strength comes near the cross while praying.
  • Submission It no longer about you once you're at the cross. Phil 2:5-8, you've got to be willing to be a nobody. There is a lack of submission in the church today towards God. You're either being a helping hand or a hired hindrance. James 4:6-7, when you submit to God then the devil will leave you alone because he doesn't like the cross.
  • Suffering If you take a stand for God then your suffering will be great but if you're next to the cross things get a whole lot better. Luke 24:25-26, Did Jesus not suffer during His scourging? As He got closer to His cross the suffering got worse.
  • Solitude Jesus was by himself as He got closer to His cross. John 19:25, once there was a multitude as people would seek Him out and at the cross there was only 5. As long as He was feeding the five thousand the people would stick around. But then when He was dying for the sin of the world then the people left Him. When you get close to Jesus your so-called friends will begin to leave but you'll end up with just a few. Those few are usually the ones that are sold out to Jesus just as you. Do you feel like you're not being feed? It's a selfish excuse. It's not about you.
  • Sacrifice We all want something for nothing. Heb 7:26-27, Jesus went to the cross and gave up His life on His own terms, an ultimate sacrifice that only He could do. That sacrifice was for us. Mark 10 speaks of a rich man that simply didn't know the gospel. Jesus explained to him about how to get to heaven. Jesus loved this man throughout their conversation. Jesus told him to basically deny himself and follow Him. But this rich man loved his stuff more than Jesus and couldn't do it. Not we do this same thing everyday but there is a difference and that's Salvation. If we have salvation then we know and should understand what we should do but we choose otherwise. You say you can't come to Sunday school cause it's too early but you'll get up to go to your place of work that's earlier.
  • Success Eph 2:13, Jesus blood covers it all. What Jesus did at the cross was simply enough. Gal 2:20, His death should have been our death. It's about being born again and nothing else.

We've been content for too long. The further you get away from the cross the more heartache you'll have. Christ has NOT given up on you. Come back and reclaim your position near the cross.

Something's Missing
Luke 15:11-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
A lot of us want things that we think we are owed. We were owed death and hell but God seen otherwise. Some of us question Gods word for us and think we know better. There is a place in your heart that needs filled and during your life you'll try to put things in that hole to try to fill it. Nothing in this world will ever fill that void. Jesus is the ONLY thing that's able to fill that void and He will never leave that void once it's filled with Him. Repeating a prayer, having a prayer prayed over you by the pastor or having your name on a church membership doesn't make you saved or fill that void. If you think you've struck a deal with God that gives you the ability to do what you want (sin) then you've been badly mistaken. You're in the wrong. God has a plan for everyone, it's just a matter of accepting His call in your life. If you avoid His call, He will try to get your attention. Sometimes it takes a lot, sometimes it takes very little to grab your attention. A lot of times folks are scared of what you'll have to give up once you turn your life over to God. God will never leave you and if He calls you, He WILL carry you thru whatever He's called you to do. What God has done for us is just beautiful. We ALL fall short of the Holiness of Gods Glory but repentance and forgiveness gets us closer and closer. When you ask for forgiveness and you get that forgiveness, God doesn't hold it over you but in fact gives the feasts of feasts because He loves you.

If there is someone that thinks that Hell is just a big party and not that it of deal, they're completely in the wrong. Hell is to be feared and there will never be a "party" but torments and a fire that will never burn up the flesh and will never cease.

It's a Family Matter
1 John 5:1-3 (Part of the Does He Abide Within? series).
We love one another because, it's a family matter. If you've been born again then you've been born of Jesus, the true love. There are many that are in the family that have been gone for a very long time. One can pick friends but you can't pick your family. Gal 6:10 We are to be good to those that are not good to you. Anya can love someone that loves back but we are to love those that don't want to be loved. The spirit of God will always a bring you to love one another. Often times we find ourselves feeling that we are in the right therefore not loving someone or saying sorry. Everyday the devil tries to destroy your relationship with another Christian. Mat 5:23-24 If you expect God to do something for you but have a grudge about someone, you must first remove the grudge. Mat 18:15 God doesn't allow fighting within His family. Luke 17:3 We are to forgive over and over. If you've been born again then you should love and forgive. God forgave you when you wasn't asking therefore you should forgive others.
