The Cross

“The Cross is access to the Father’s Heart. Freedom to Boldly approach Him.” -Kari jobe

Taking road trips can be fun, adventurous and exhausting. But as for me, road trips are great opportunity to let your mind ponder on things you’ve put at the back of your mind. 

As I turned on my spotfity playlist, the kari jobe/bethel music  song “Forever” played and had on repeat, which had my mind going.

Lets take a honest look at ourselves of 2015 for a moment and were only quater way through the year. 
How often do we think about The Cross? And really allow ourselves to embrace the power of The Cross, redemption working through us for the greater reveal of God’s love and kindness. 

Honesty, I have not even hit the gold as they say, with this point about The Cross and how deep it goes. But this subject itself is the greatest treasure to hold and yet given to us at no cost. 

Hebrews 8:6-13
6 But the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, and it is founded on better promises. 7 For if there had been nothing wrong with that first covenant, no place would have been sought for another. 8 But God found fault with the people and said: “The time is coming, declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. 9 It will not be like the covenant I made with their forefathers when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they did not remain faithful to my covenant, and I turned away from them, declares the Lord. “10 This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. 11 No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest. 12 For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.” 13 By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and aging will soon disappear. ”
