How recently have you come to the cross? How recently have you fallen to your knees in wonder at God’s love and grace? How can this be, that God would give Himself to redeem us? The good news of Jesus Christ is not merely an intellectual concept or a leadership philosophy; the good news is life; the good news is a person; the good news is Jesus. Look to Him today, let His sacrifice find its way into your heart and invade your thoughts. Be changed in His presence. Then rise to live, love, and lead like Him.
And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.—2 Corinthians 3:18
Prayer: Lord, we come to Your cross. Your love knew no bounds, and because of who You are, we are forgiven, redeemed, justified, and reconciled. Thank You, Father. Thank You, Jesus. Live through us today, in Jesus’ name, amen.
