Whether it’s legal issues in this culture or outright persecution in other places in the world, the Spirit is desperately trying to stir Western Christians into a deeper walk with him. We need our eyes on him. We need our vision full of Christ. The noise of this culture has to give way to the clear voice of our King.
Good Friday is an ideal time to focus. To see the Cross. To see our Savior. To hear his call.
Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear. For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. (1 Peter 1:17-20)
Let us remember our true allegiance today. It is the cross. It is the King.
