Dear Younger Me, Look Nowhere Else

Dear Younger me,

No amount of compliments , likes on Facebook or Instagram posts, you get parties you are invited to, will give you unshakable security.

What you’re looking for, that feeling of assuredness, that you are loved, you’re worth something, you are approved of, you can and will only find in one place.

When you look upon the cross, you’ll see it in Jesus’ face.

That’s the only place you’ll always find it. He’s the only one who can give you everlasting security. So stop looking everywhere else.

Dear Younger me, Security comes from…

Dear Younger Me,

No amount of compliments you get, likes on Facebook or Instagram, parties you are invited to, will give you unshakeable security.

What you’re looking for, that feeling of assuredness, that you are loved, you’re worth something, you are approved of, you can and will only find it in one place.

When you look on the cross, you’ll see it in Jesus’ face.

That’s the only place you’ll always find it. He’s the only one who can give you everlasting security. So, stop looking everywhere else!!

Lead Me to the Cross

Mark 15:38-39

There are so many posts about how we should always remember the cross. If I were being honest, I would say I sometimes get tired of reading about it, but that attitude in itself shows that I need to center my attention on the cross more than ever.

In this passage, when a centurion, a servant of the Roman empire, a solider who obeys orders, sees Jesus’ death on the cross he believes that Jesus is the son of God.

This just simply reminds me of the power of the cross and Christ’s death.

When we are doubting God’s power, His plans, His sovereignty, His love, His will, really any part of His character, we must go back to the cross, we must focus on Hid death, His sacrifice.

Because, if a faithless Roman solider can look at the cross in a second and believe in the son of God, we surely, as believers, can look upon the cross and believe in God’s character.

So do not wait to return to the cross. Meditate on it daily.
