Jesus Poured Out on the Cross
When Jesus hung on the cross he did so willingly. In fact he chose to come to earth, to put aside His privileges as diety, be born and raised as a baby, child, teen and adult. It was further His choice to be sacrificed for our sin. A year or so ago I heard a communion homily about the blood that Jesus lost on the cross. In a real sense he poured out his life blood for us when he was nailed and pierced on the cross. This pouring out of His life is our game plan for knowing real satisfaction and fulfilment. Jesus said we must deny our selves to find ourselves. We must give up our life to find life.
Once when Jesus had not eaten, his disciples enjoined him to have some food. His response was that his food was to do the Father’s will.
When you find a ministry that is in the center of what God is doing, you will find yourself engaged in the most fulfilling and satisfying activity you have never known. You may become tired physically but you will be rejuvenated spiritually.
During this season of nine months involvement with the High Point Burmese, I can testify to the excitement, joy, fulfilment, meaning and breadth given to my life through regular ministry with these new friends. I want to encourage you to find a place where you can be poured out like Jesus, yet find a spiritual sustanance beyond compare.
