Mergeti la Cruce!

Asa cum am mai spus, m-a binecuvantat Dumnezeu asa de mult in timp ce citeam aceasta carte a lui Mahaney „Humility, True Greatness”. Un lucru care mi-a placut in mod deosebit este ca da niste strategii practice de a slabi puterea mandriei si de a cultiva smerenia. Printre multele lui sfaturi am gasit unul care mi-a sarit in ochi. „Meditati asupra maretiei crucii.” Mahaney spune „Pentru a omora mandria in mod serios si intentionat… trebuie ca in fiecare zi sa privesti la crucea minunata pe care a murit Printul Slavei.”

Apoi citeaza cativa mari sfinti atat din trecut cat si din prezent.

Jown Owen a spus: „Umple-ti sentimentele de crucea lui Hristos… astfel nu va mai fi loc pentru pacat.”

Martin Lloyd Jones a spus: „Cand vad ca sunt un pacatos… ca nimic in afara de Fiul lui Dumnezeu pe cruce ma poate mantui, sunt smerit pana-n tarana… Numai „Crucea” ne poate da acest duh al smereniei”

John Stott a spus: „Cu totii avem pareri semete despre noi insine, mai ales in neprihanirea de sine, asta pana sa mergem la locul numit Calvar. Acolo, la piciorul crucii, ne reducem la adevarata noastra masura.”

Carl Henry a spus: „”Cum poate fi cineva arogant cand sta langa cruce?”

Fie sa venim la cruce zilnic, astfel sa vedem frumusetea dragostei Lui si harului Sau si sa fim topiti. Toata aroganta, mandria si gandurile nemiloase o sa piara in timp ce vedem Mielul fara pata junghiat pentru pacatele noastre.

Va las cu un ultim citat. Stott spune: „Putem sta inaintea crucii doar cu capul plecat si duhul frant.”

Ai fost smerit de cruce astazi?

J. C. Hahne

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of faith it takes
To climb out of this boat I’m in
Onto the crashing waves

To step out of my comfort zone
Into the realm of the unknown where Jesus is
And He’s holding out His hand

But the waves are calling out my name
And they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times
I’ve tried before and failed
The waves they keep on telling me
Time and time again. „Boy, you’ll never win!”
„You’ll never win!”

REFREN:
But the voice of truth tells me a different story
The voice of truth says, „Do not be afraid!”
The voice of truth says, „This is for My glory”
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of strength it takes to stand before a giant
With just a sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound of a thousand warriors
Shaking in their armor
Wishing they’d have had the strength to stand

But the giant’s calling out my name
And he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times
I’ve tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me
Time and time again. „Boy you’ll never win!”
„You’ll never win!”

But the stone was just the right size
To put the giant on the ground
And the waves they don’t seem so high
From on top of them lookin’ down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
When I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
Singing over me

I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth
