In the days of JESUS, to be put upon the Cross was to bring the end to an evil man. The Cross destroys confidence in our old selves and we die to our old selves, not just to improve an old life. It slays the sinner not redirects him; nor does it merely get someone to live a better life while keeping their self-respect. If we are on the Cross, we are facing only one direction! We have no further plans of our own and we bid farewell because we are not going back. I don't have the courage to "bear the Cross", but when I agree with GOD to quit justifying myself and excusing my way of life HE does the rest! 2 Timothy 2:11, "...For if we died with HIM, we shall live with HIM." YES, NO TURNING BACK, JUST CROSS OVER!
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
