Living the adventure

Tall, dark, and handsome. “Short, furry, and funny,” to quote Robin Williams. It’s easy to describe a man’s appearance in three words. But what about his heart? What three words would you use to describe a real man or a godly man? My writers group on Facebook answered like this:

Eyes on Jesus

Leads his family

Patient, kind, humble

Becoming like Christ

I was chained. You wouldn’t have been able to hear clanging links as I walked by, or see the chain that was metaphorically wrapped around my heart and mind. But for years, I struggled with chains of my own making. When I realized that they were hindering my walk with God, I wanted to be free. I just wasn’t sure how to do it.

Have you been there? Even children of God battle bad habits or detrimental ways of thinking, feeling, and acting. Jesus died to set us free from sin’s power in our lives, but we can still walk hindered. We can let fear, anxiety, anger, loneliness, and so forth hinder what God wants to do in our lives and how we relate to Him and other people. But it doesn’t have to be that way. We can break free and stay free. The strategies to do it are in our new book.

The battlefield had long been determined. Since the demise of Lucifer and his followers, the forces of Satan had warred against the hosts of the LORD. Yet one particular battle had been foretold—the suffering of a Servant, the payment of all sin of all time, the redemption of mankind. This battlefield was the cross.

Although Scripture doesn’t reveal to us the spiritual warfare surrounding the cross, the Gospels help us to know the struggle and agony felt by those on the scene. If we stepped into the story that has been recorded for us, we would hear the jeers of the crowd, the hammering of nails, and the likely weeping of Jesus’ followers. We would see the anguish of John the disciple and others who watched their Master dying. We would see a centurion torn between doing his job and coming to the realization that this Man nailed to a cross was the Son of God.
