COMMITTED TO THE MESSAGE OF THE CROSS- Tonight at Crossfire, Pastor Paris Ragan reads from Mark 14: 32-36 preaching on the will of God for the life of every believer.
There are specific things that God wants to do in every believer, and it’s concealed and private between God and the individual. Then there is also something that is established, in His word, that He expects for each and every believer, and that is the Cross is the will of God for each of us. In the Garden of Gethsemane, we see a garden of pain. It’s a garden of decision, and it’s a garden of commitment. Jesus was enduring the weight and the burden of what He was about to bear on the Cross of Calvary. The Cross was not just a theological principal, but also an actual literal event. Something that Jesus actually, literally did. Pastor Paris brings home the committing faith needed of every believer to understand and accept what Christ did at the Cross. In the garden, Jesus wasn’t just praying that He would understand what His death would mean, He was praying for power and the ability to bare that death for all of mankind.
