Face Up to the Cross.
You are most welcome to come along to the Easter services at St Paul’s:
Thursday 7.00pm, Good Friday 9.00am, and Easter Sunday 9.00am.
Hopefully, we can connect the Cross of Good Friday to what is happening in our life. Hopefully, there is more than “What a magnificent, epic story of self-sacrifice that is.” It is quite possible to miss the “For us”. It’s quite easy to avoid connecting this story to your own story.
All of us have to face up to something … something we are terribly afraid of … the many threats to the life we are meant to enjoy … something we lack the courage to do … something we are ashamed of … something we need to say to someone who has hurt us or who we have hurt. As we face up to the cross, it helps us to face these parts of our life. We will receive strength as we hear him say to us, “For You”. This makes all the difference in the world as you face up to the biggest challenges and threats to your life. This Good Friday and Easter, FACE UP TO THE CROSS and learn again how Jesus … only Jesus … gives his life so that we may have life to enjoy.
“For God loved (ALL) the World so much that he gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him may not die but have everlasting life.” John 3:6
