Take Up Your Cross?

“Take up your cross and follow me.” What did Jesus mean when he said that? Is he calling us to hate our wives, kids, and parents? Is he calling us to be willing to suffer anything if we are going to be his followers? Is he laying down a test of radical discipleship? Or is he calling us to something else?

Jesus: Our Passover Lamb

From sundown yesterday to sundown today is Passover. (Note: For an additional seven days after Passover, the Jews were not to eat any leavened bread. The eight days together—beginning with Passover—were referred to as the Feast of Unleavened Bread. In modern Jewish vernacular, the eight days are often all referred to as Passover.)

Comforts from the Cross (Transcript)

Sometimes we think we have understood the gospel and maybe have even gotten to the bottom of it–only to have God blow up our hearts and minds with the wonder of the gospel anew. In this episode, Jon and Justin talk about the comfort of the work of Christ.

MEMBERS: Comforts from the Cross (Transcript)

Today on Theocast, Jon and I talk about the fact that sometimes as Christians we think that we have understood the gospel, foolishly thinking we have reached the bottom and that there’s not a lot left for us to understand. Then God comes in, graciously and lovingly, and explodes our hearts and minds with the wonder, truth, mercy, and grace of the gospel. 

We talk today about comforts from the Cross; the fact that when Jesus died and said that it is finished, that he had accomplished redemption and that his glory, righteousness, merits, and life were counted to wretched sinners like us. We talk about that and its implications in the church. 

In the members podcast, we consider self-righteousness and how bad it is in the church, and how if we understand the gospel rightly then it should promote love and unity because we understand that we all have the same righteousness – namely the righteousness of Christ. We hope that this conversation is encouraging to you.
