Take Up Your Cross April 5th 2015

The stone was rolled away He is risen!

Are you holding fast to traditions of men or are you clutching the nail scarred hand of Jesus who arose?

For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition. (Mark 7:8-9 KJV)

Are you serving the risen Savior?  Or rejecting Him for your own man-made habits, traditions, and dead gods of this world? There are many who seem to be dabbling in religion or loosely professing a personal belief in God but a personal relationship with God through His Son Jesus Christ is based upon the finished work and shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross who arose from the grave three days later.  Jesus Christ paid a great price for the entire sin debt of mankind.

We serve a risen Savior. Some people are busy about serving traditions and rituals or relying upon “religiousity” instead of personally knowing and accepting Him as their Savior.  Some still idolize Him as the baby in the manger or view Him as the man in the flesh upon the cross, but we serve a living God who arose from the grave and brought about eternal life for all who turn to Him in faith repenting of their sin.  No other gods of this world are alive and supernaturally powerful through the shed blood and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ.

Easter is not about the traditions of men; including eggs and bunnies, or for serving false doctrine, and idolatry.  It is all about the one true and living God. The stone was rolled away and Jesus Christ arose on the third day taking away the sting of death for whosoever shall believe in Him.
