Take Up Your Cross October 20th 2015

Man is naturally weak, unworthy, and ineffective

But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead: (2 Corinthians 1:9 KJV)

All mankind is born into this world with an imminent physical death sentence.  Certain physical death is on account of the dark sin nature of the god of this world residing inside the heart of mankind from birth.  Man has nothing naturally within himself to glory about.  Man is naturally weak, unworthy, and ineffective in his own strength and power.

Thank God man’s circumstances do not have to remain in this bleak and dismal condition.  Man does not have to exist in the trenches of evil with the grip of death about his neck living hand in hand with the god of this world because of his innate sin nature.

God has a better plan!  He sent His Son to purchase eternal freedom from sin and death through His shed blood on the cross at Calvary.  Man can place his trust in God through the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross coming out from the darkness to dwell in the light of His Word living in the supernatural strength and power according to His will upon our life.
