How do you walk in the way of grace? Journey through Lent and Holy Week with your CCPC family.
I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead. I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death, so that one way or another I will experience the resurrection from the dead.
There was a time when I was not ready to die to sin, but I needed to become one with Christ. It took great sacrifice, as Paul gave up everything - family, friendship, freedom, and I felt pulled to give up some things that were comfortable to me. They were not the way God wanted me to live and given a second chance, surviving cancer, I, one step at a time, began to give up my old ways and take a leap of faith and truly trust in Christ, experiencing the power that raised him from the dead. Once I took that leap of faith, my world changed and I feel that victory every day. What do you need to give up, to know Christ? A busy schedule in exchange for quiet time, study, time with family? Are there influences you feel are not the way of God?
Faithful God, help us to see your way, not our way. Each day, let us give up what is not yours and feel the peace and glory that comes with the faith we have in you. AMEN
