What Do You Live?

Jesus said "I Am The Way and The Truth and The Life.  I Am the Good Shepherd.  I Am the Bread of Life.  I Am the Vine."  Then Jesus asks: Who do you say I am?  Christians echo Jesus' words.  We say to Jesus: Yes, Jesus, You are The Way, The Truth, The Life, the Good Shepherd, the Bread of Life, the True Vine.  These have been our themes so far on Wednesdays at Crossroads during Lent.

When we have gathered on Wednesdays the Lord has been challenging us, through His Word and through the Holy Spirit. He has been provoking and pushing and prodding, asking us if what we say with our words is also what we "say" with our lives.
  • If we say Jesus is the Way, Truth and Life, do we trust him completely?  
  • If we say Jesus is the Good Shepherd, are we listening for his voice?  
  • If we say Jesus provides for all of our needs (being the Bread of Life), do we live in the expectation that He will indeed provide for us in the future?  
  • And if Jesus is the source of our life, do we take time to be with Him?
These are some things the Lord has been asking us on the last four Wednesdays.  We then put these words into action through prayer, praying for trust, for discernment, for provision, and, last night, for time in His Holy Presence.  The scriptures we used for our meditation last night can be downloaded by clicking ►here◄.  I encourage you to read these scriptures and pray them, asking the Lord to bring your life into harmony with what He says.

Let us continue to pray with and for one another in the weeks to come.  Let us stand with one another as we repent and trust our Lord to bring our lives into alignment with His Word.
