Posts Tagged ‘The Cross’

Major Daniel Webster Whittle (1840-1901) was an American evangelist, Bible teacher and hymn writer. Through the influence of D. L. Moody, he entered full-time evangelism.  This is one of his many hymns…

Going forth at Christ’s command,
Going forth to every land;
Full salvation making known,
Through the blood of God’s dear Son.

Serving God through all our days,
Toiling not for purse or praise;
But to magnify His name,
While the gospel we proclaim.

Seeking only souls to win,
From the deadly power of sin;
We would guide their steps aright,
Out of darkness into light.

“Saved to serve!” the watchword ring,
“Saved to serve,” our glorious King;
Tell the story o’er and o’er,
“Saved to serve” forever more.

Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together!

I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving.

There is only ONE statement made by our Lord Jesus Christ that is recorded in all four Gospels:

Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.  For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.”  Matthew 16: 24-25

“For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.”  Mark 8:35

“And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.”  Luke 14:27

“He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.  If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.”  John 12: 25-26

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~****************~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 9:16  “For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for necessity is laid upon me; yes, woe is me if I do not preach the gospel!”

It’s my prayer, that each new day is one in which we offer ourselves as servants to our  Heavenly Father and Lord Jesus Christ!  Our life does not belong to us… it is HIS!

April 4


I want to know Christ – yes, to know the power of His resurrection and participation in His sufferings, becoming like Him in His death. (Philippians 3:10 NIV)

Do recognize that the Cross is the end of the risen life, and not only the beginning. If you forget everything else, remember that. The Cross is the end of the risen life, as well as the beginning: “That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, becoming conformed unto His death.” People have been to me with Philippians 3 and have asked: “Why did Paul put death at the end? Surely it ought to be right the other way round – ‘That I may be conformed to His death, and know Him in the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings.'” No, there is no mistake. The order is of the Holy Spirit. The power of His resurrection presupposes that there has been a death, but the very resurrection-life leads to the Cross. The Holy Spirit in the power of the risen life is always leading you back to the Cross, to conformity to His death. It is the very property of Life to rule out all that belongs to death. It is the very power of resurrection to bring us back to the place where death is constantly overcome.

That place is none other than the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ where the natural life is put aside. So Paul says: “…becoming conformed unto His death,” which means: to have the ground of death continuously and progressively removed; and that, again, as we have said, is the fruit of living union with Him. It would be a poor look-out for you and for me were we to be conformed to His death in entirety apart from the power of resurrection in us, apart from our already knowing the Life of the Lord. Where would be our hope? What is it that is the power of our survival when the Cross is made more real in our experience? There would be no survival were it not that His risen Life is in us. So Paul prays: “That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection…” and that means conformity to His death without utter destruction. The end of the risen life is the Cross. The Holy Spirit is always working in relation to the Cross, in order that the power of His resurrection may be increasingly manifested in us.

It can be a bit jarring when you look at the difference between what the world believes and what Christ taught. This video compares what the crowd says and what the Cross says. Music by the Robbie Seay Band.
