About The Mystery of Discipleship Series
Jesus’ closest disciples were trusted to speak for Him and tell us His story. All are called to the mystery of discipleship, but the choice is ours.
1 Corinthians 1:18 AMPC
For the story and message of the cross is sheer absurdity and folly to those who are perishing and on their way to perdition but to us who are being saved it is the (manifestation of) the power of God.
The power of the Cross is that all was solved there and it is the perfect (but ONLY) solution to humanity’s total depravity. The Cross has the power to transform you…there is NO other place of such power.
The Cross will set you free of your Adamic self. It is your dearest friend, your piercing examiner! The Cross comes to the very core of your idolatry and the unseen place of your independence. Idolatry and independence: the two deadly aspects of human nature from Eden.
The Cross will take you out of the prison of self and make you what you never were and never could be. All because of Christ’s life poured out and given – TO YOU! Through the cross Jesus is resurrected and released within you and lives AS you!
The Cross is the end of you AND the beginning of you.
