How is the cross affecting me?
On the cross Jesus gave Himself for each of us. What Jesus accomplished on the cross enables us to do what God demands in our lives. Because of the cross we have a new life. As Jesus lives out His life within us we have a life of victory. We are not only cleaned from sin, but we have the fullest of life. The cross of Jesus is our only hope in the world. The call of the cross is one of personal discipline and high moral standards. As we live day by day how is the cross affecting our lives? Living a life with a focus on the cross allows Jesus to live His life within us. Can we say along with Paul, “It is no longer I who lives, but Christ lives in me”? We must let God work in our life and heart so that all of our activities are witnesses of the cross.
