Easter Friday

Well its Easter Friday, and like many today, its being good to reflect on the cross, and what that act means for me. I'm amazed at how quickly I forget the implications of the cross, how my default position is to try and be a good person so God can like me. I love the way The Message para-phrases Romans 6. Sin can't tell you how to live. After all, you're not living under that old tyranny any longer. You're living in the freedom of God.

As Yaconelli says "the grace of God is dangerous. Its lavish, excessive, outrageous, and scandalous. Gods grace is ridiculously inclusive. Apparently God doesn't care who He loves. He is not very careful about the people He calls friends or the people He calls His church".

Once again I am deeply moved about this incredible act of love and am in awe of the life giving freedom that the cross entails.

I am desperate for the kids at this camp to have a revelation of the cross, and the freedom on offer. I am desperate to live out of that place myself.

    I too love Good Friday, but just once a year is enough...

    I love the Message VERSION of Romans. Very helpful.
