The Offense Of The Cross
Galatians 6:14 (AMP)
14 But far be it from me to boast [in anything or anyone], except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
The Offense Of The Cross, I recently read a story of a sixty four year old electrician that in 2011 in England faced dismissal from his job because he displayed a small cross on the dashboard of his work vehicle. The man said that “he had worked in the coal mines and served in the army in Northern Ireland and had never suffered such stress”
Company officials justified their demand by claiming the small cross might cause offence. But the electrician wouldn’t back down, he said to a news paper “I have never been so full of resolve” and “I am determined to stand up for my rights. If they sack me, so be it. But I am standing up for my faith.”
As Sons of God, we enjoy intimacy and security with Him, but we must also endure pressure and sometimes persecution for our faith. sometimes even from other “christians” Yet we must never be discouraged. We have liberty in Christ, the promise of eternal life in Him, and we are a blessed people.
The Offense Of The Cross
Lets be full of resolve and full of rejoicing, no matter what persecution may come.
I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!
