The Language Of The Cross

October 8th, 2011

Do you speak the language of the Cross?

The cross doesn’t care where you’ve been,
It cares about where your going.

The cross doesn’t care what you’ve done,
It cares about what you’ll do.

The cross doesn’t care who you’ve known,
It cares about who you know.

The cross doesn’t care what you love,
It teaches you what love is.

When the world rejects the cross,
The cross welcomes all who come.

You don’t change the cross,
The cross changes you.

The cross only promises life to those who are ready to die. The law condemned us, the cross freed us.

“Having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross.” Colossians 1:14 The cross of Christ speaks a better word over our life, and that’s the way I see it in my market.

October 6th, 2011

We finish up this series today. We have been talking about our appetites and how they desire to control us. So what happens when we lose control? When our appetite for food takes over and we no longer eat to live, but live to eat? When our appetite for significance gets out of control and we search for better stuff instead of a better me? or because we feel insignificance we just want to escape? What happens when our desire spiritual emotional physical intimacy leads us into living in a bad relationship rather than into a relationship where we live for God? and because of that we hide? What do we do?????

Things done in secret control us.

When we hide in secret we live in darkness.

If you want to break to power of darkness you must expose it the light. Ephesians 5:8-14 Paul talks about the power of light and darkness. If you don’t know Jesus you live in the dark, but once you receive him HE bring light in to your life. Secrets empower your appetites. If you are hiding in shame because of an appetite that has gotten out of control, EXPOSE IT! How? By telling someone about it. James 5:16 says {confess your sin to each other and pray for each other so that you my be healed.}

Find someone who loves and cares about you and tell them about the darkness you are battling and watch what happens. And that’s the way I see it in my market.
