I’ll pick up my cross

Posted by appolus on June 22, 2013

In an age where there is an assault on the work of Calvary and the work of forgiveness and the ongoing forgiveness that we experience as we pick up our cross daily and follow Jesus down the narrow path of sanctification, the Lord gave me these words below. I pray that it edifies the saints.

SO I’LL PICK UP MY CROSS

Lord let my flesh be crucified
That thou oh Lord be glorified
When they look at me please let them see
Christ my Lord and Calvary

Forgiveness begins
At the foot of the cross
It was there that I gladly
suffered the loss

Of my life, of my sin
Of all that I am
I was washed in the blood
The blood of the Lamb

So I’ll pick up my cross
And follow this day
The Lord my Redeemer
Who alone is the way

Redeemed by the blood
Refined by the fire
It’s the narrow path
That takes me up higher

Higher and higher
And higher to thee
Because of the blood
That has set me free

I shall humble myself
In the sight of my King
He shall raise me up
With the angels to sing

Glory, glory
Glory to thee
Released from my chains
And gloriously set free

And Christ my King
Is still on the throne
He never leaves nor forsakes me
I am never alone

Time for a u-turn?

Posted by appolus on March 23, 2013

I have a GPS system in my car. It’s awesome. As a directionally challenged Real Estate agent it has been such a blessing to me. I simply put in the address and follow the blue line and I inevitably end up at my destination. Yet even with this system, you can take wrong turns and the system will automatically “recalculate,” and give you new directions to get you back on track. This almost always involves “taking the next exit,” or doing a “ legal u-turn when possible.” Sometimes when you take the wrong road, but it runs near to or initially parallel with the correct road, the system still believes you to be on the right road. As the wrong road slowly veers away from the correct road, the system finally figures it out and re-directs you . Much of Christendom has taken the wrong road. Initially it runs almost parallel to the correct road and , without discernment,it is almost impossible to know that you are on the wrong path. Most will simply plow ahead down the road directed and its at a point of getting lost that the person realizes that they have went astray. When Amelia Earheart attempted her epic flight, it is reckoned that she only had to be a tiny fraction off in her calculations to miss the Island that she was aiming for by hundreds of miles. To continue flying and being slightly of course, would take her ever further away from her destination. Today, Christendom is moving further and further away from its destination. When the destination ceases to be God Himself, and the destination becomes something other than His presence, His Tabernacle, His alter, His throne room, then we simply get further and further away from Him and the narrow path that leads to Him. Only by getting off at the “next exit,” or doing a “ legal u-turn,” can we get back on the narrow path. The address, the direction itself must always be God Himself. Are you headed in that direction, is that what is plugged into your spirit, is He your destination?
