Christ “made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death – even death on a cross!” (Phil. 2:7-8) How awesome to consider that the Creator of the universe, unbound in time and space for all eternity, chose to be bound
by a woman’s womb for nine months,
by the body of a man that knew weariness and hunger,
by a Roman cross, with His hands and feet pinned by spikes,
by a borrowed tomb . . .
Why? So that you and I might be set free from the problems that threaten to bind us and keep us from fulfilling God’s intended purpose for our lives.
Praise God! We can be free, truly free at last, from all that binds us, because the One Who is gloriously eternal, unbound by time and space, was willing to be bound!
The cross is not just a symbol of love or a fashion statement. The cross is your daily decision to deny yourself,
and deliberately, wholeheartedly, unreservedly live out your commitment to His will and His way and His Word and His wisdom. The cross is your decision to live for Jesus. Period. No “ifs,” “ands,” “buts,” or “maybes.”
Would you take up your cross . . . every day . . . and follow Him?
