“I saw… a Lamb standing, as if slain… ” (Revelation 5:6)
And the other nine ran away in fear.
… Until the reality of the CROSS and the RESURRECTION dawned upon them.
They (Judas excepted) then became men POSSESSED by Jesus… men OBSESSED with Christ:
“The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world… who takes away the sin of the world” (Revelation 13:8; John 1:29)
As you embark upon this week’s challenges, ask yourself:
“WHAT IS MY OBSESSION?”
“WHAT POSSESSES ME?”
The resurrected Lamb of God?
- Which rung of the corporate ladder I am on?
- How to bolster this quarter’s sales?
- Whether I should get the BMW or the Benz?
Unless and until we are obsessed and possessed by the CRUCIFIED and RESURRECTED
Lamb of God, we will continue to live in the self-imposed prison of:
Doubt, denial, and fear… Like Thomas, Judas, Peter, and the other nine that ran away.
Let’s concentrate on making a living… but keep the effort in the perspective of the cross, the resurrection… and eternity.
