CRUCIFIED, RESURRECTED, AND ASCENDED WITH CHRIST

CRUCIFIED, RESURRECTED, AND ASCENDED WITH CHRIST

We might miss the ultimate purpose and blessing of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion, death, burial, resurrection and ascension if we remotely regard them only as a great historical event.

If all that we know and believe is that Christ died for our transgressions, rose up for our justification, and He is now seated at the right hand of God the Father making intercession for us, then we are too shallow in our spiritual understanding and revelation of the significances and implications of Jesus’ crucifixion, death, burial, resurrection and ascension…

WHAT DID JESUS FINISH?

WHAT DID JESUS FINISH?

The suffering and death of Jesus Christ on the cross was not accidental; it was premeditated or foreordained by God. Jesus was the Lamb of God slain from the foundation of the world but revealed to us and offered on the cross at the fullness of time to bear and take away our sins and all the wages of our sins (Rev. 13:8).

HINDRANCES TO TRUE SPIRITUAL GROWTH (Part 2)

Unhealthy spiritual comparison is one of the major causes of spiritual retardation among the believers today. It is unwise to compare, judge or measure your spiritual growth by the life and character of anyone else except that of Christ (2 Cor. 10:12).

While it is good and beneficial to have a spiritual mentor, leader, or a discipler whose love for God, godly lifestyle, faith, and labours and sacrifices for God’s kingdom you can emulate; however, you must be careful not to set any man regardless of his spiritual level or maturity as your perfect or ultimate standard and model of spirituality or maturity (Heb. 10:24)…

Parents take special pride or delight in speaking about their children’s healthy growth and development, successes and achievements in life. Likewise, God takes delight in His children healthy growth and development…
