Wednesday In The Word

I don't know about you but I love me some Max Lucado. There isn't a book I have of his that I have not enjoyed. Some of his books I've enjoyed MANY times over and one of those books is "SIX HOURS ONE FRIDAY". 


With Easter approaching and Good Friday just days away how can we not think of those SIX HOURS? 
The CROSS....Do we realize what Jesus done for us on the Cross? Oh how we tend to forget at times.




Max Lucado reminds us in his book that if we aren't teaching the Cross then somehow we have forgotten that we need it! If we're not teaching people how to be saved then perhaps we have forgotten the tragedy of being lost. If we're not teaching the message of forgiveness we must have forgotten what it was like to be guilty. 


How quickly we forget what the Cross meant for us! 
The cross means that you and I must acknowledge our desperate need for God. Without Him we are nothing.
The cross means Christ's death has made it possible for us to be reconnected to God. 
 The cross means if we ask forgiveness for our sins and receive Christ into our lives we will be saved.  
 When we begin to forget what Jesus done for us and made possible for us lets stop for just a minute...lets close our eyes and see ourselves standing before HIM.
Think...really think....see the Christ! Run your fingers over His nail scared feet. Place your hand in His pierced side. Look up now...into His eyes...Those are the same eyes that melted the gates of hell and sent the demons and Satan running. 
Look into His eyes...YOU WILL NEVER BE THE SAME!


I am so grateful that He chose to go to the Cross for me! A mere sinner saved by grace....

In those SIX HOURS ONE FRIDAY a lot happened!

Praying you all have a wonderful Good Friday and a very Blessed Easter.

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  1. Your blog has brought me to tears this morning. I am so thankful that he went to the Cross for me also. Most of the time I feel like I fall short, that I'm not doing enough, not able to get the Word out correctly...Thank God for his mercies; for His Son. I also love Max Lucado's writings. He just makes you want to have a heart like that all the time. Thank you for this message.
    And thank you for visiting my blog. I was so happy to see that you had visited. Now I'm a new follower of your blog.
    Happy Easter and have a blessed day.

  8. Cindy, Is that ever true!!! We need to tell others the message. The field is white unto harvest, but the workers are few. I pray that I may be a bold witness and that Christ will use me. Thanks for a wonderful post, Cindy, and Happy Easter.
