In awe of Jesus Christ on this Good Friday for His indescribable passion for us, His Bride. To Him be all honor and glory, dominion, power, and praise, now and forever more!
The degree to which we Christians trust God and receive His application of the Cross to break what surfaces of our old self is the extent to which we live this eternal spiritual life now. Like the peeling of an onion, God graciously exposes deeper layers of our sin against Him through daily circumstances/ interactions with others. The more readily we receive His discipline and repent the moment sins are revealed, the more swiftly His glory is revealed in and through us. The more deeply each member loves Christ and denies himself, the closer the Body is to attaining to the whole measure of His fullness, thereby liberating the creation from its bondage to decay (see John 14:23, Mt. 16:24, Eph. 4:12-13, Ro. 8:18-21).
May God enlighten the eyes of our hearts and grant us the Spirit of wisdom and revelation as we meditate on His pathway to glory.
