Jesus Christ was nailed and died at the cross, to fulfill a prophecy that the blood of the sinless will wash away the sins of the sinful. At the cross, God has manifested His love,humility, passion and strength. At the cross, we were forgiven. All our sins was washed away. The cross was one of the many symbols for our new beginnings in a life with God.
And just like all new beginnings, we need to let go of the old ways. We need to leave something(s) at the cross.
Beloved, what will you leave at the cross? Here, let’s help each other.
That frustration from unmet expectations from your your family, friends, partner and spouses? Let it go beloved. Now that we are in Christ, we can expect the fulfillment of our heart’s desire.
That hurt from past and/or present relationship that didn’t work out well? Drop it here, beloved. You are now in a perfect relationship with someone really perfect, beyond our comprehension. You are now in a relationship with the Lord.
That resentment form unkempt promises? Pour it out. And on this day forward, rely only on God’s love and promises.
That anger on your heart? Release it. Anger has no place in the life of a child of God.
That sadness that causes your tears? Blow it away. He did not promise us a perfect life, but He promised that He will be perfect for us.
Everything else that makes you feel bad, leave it at the cross beloved. Let God take care of you and let Him deal with all of it. He has eternity , so do not fear.
