Ever thought ‘If I could just get a break!” So many times we think it is the ‘Big Break’ that will ‘Open the Door’ to success in life. Or maybe because we came from ‘The wrong side of the Tracks’ is what we blame for holding us back. Maybe blame the family you were born in or ‘I’m the black Sheep’ philosophy. ‘If only’… things had been different in my life…
When Jesus took on The Cross that was our Big Break to the Open Door!
Gal. 6:14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
1 Corinthians 2:2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
Blame it on whatever we like, our ONLY HOPE is in the Cross! Let us not become so haughty with our modern day disillusion that we think we are beyond the Cross. Possibly the reason so many Christians feel they are defeated, depressed or hopeless has nothing to do with ‘The hand I was dealt’ but that we are forgetting The Cross! 1 Cor. 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
