Dear Church Family,
Last week in John 19:16b-30 we witnessed the crucifixion of King Jesus. Pastor Chuck preached on the what and the why of the cross. Jesus bore his cross, hung, suffered extreme physical and spiritual agony, and died—that’s the what. He did so to fulfill the Scriptures, bring about salvation, and set the pattern of life for all believers—that’s the why. Brothers and sisters, consider what Christ has done for you, and the end he has achieved. Salvation! Peace with God and the hope of eternal life! Only in knowing that this work is finished can we gladly take up our crosses to follow him. What will it mean for you to die to yourself this week? What will it cost? However great the suffering, consider the what and why of Jesus’ cross. There you will find every reason to rejoice in the dying!
Serve One Another
One of the best ways to die to self is simply to serve another. “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45). The various ministries happening at Church on Mill on a Sunday morning are only possible because our church family has served sacrificially. Would you consider and pray about how you might serve for the following term?
