THE CRUCIFIXION: BLOOD ASSURANCE
True Christian living requires us to live according to Kingdom standards which bring Heaven to earth
THE CRUCIFIXION: BLOOD ASSURANCE
Would you die for someone? Most people would say no. A few would say yes and mean no.
The core of all evil is oneís self. Self worship is a breeding ground for every form of spiritual infection and disease. If you are the center of most of your decisions, if most of your actions are for or about you, youíre worshiping yourself.
And thatís where crucifixion comes in. To be like Jesus is to be crucified like him, but in your case, from the inside only. Jesus was the sinless example, who was crucified in His soul and in His body. Committing no sin, he allowed Himself to be beaten severely, tortured, humiliated and nailed to the cross as a bad example to the world, but a shining example to the children of God. Jesus cleared the way for you to have a personal relationship with God as He did.
You only get out of something what you put into it. If you acknowledge God in a superficial way, you will have a meaningless, fake relationship with God, good only to show the world, that you are a devout religious person.
Death comes before resurrection and the same is true with our life. Dying to self means, itís all about Godís willÖnot ours.
Ultimately, God will have His way on the earth, no matter what we do. We obey Him for our own good and to save our own life.
It is simple to understand. Do you want to be friends with someone, who doesnít really care about you, who only pretends to care about you for appearance sake.
You can only enter heaven, if you replace your will for Godís Will. Thatís what being crucified with Christ means.
What is Godís will for your life? The first and last purpose that God has for you, is to talk with Him and listen.
Everything that remainsÖwill take care of itself.
