Sharing Our Treasures with Christ

We all enjoy showing our loved ones just how much they mean to us, but what about Christ?  Do we show Him the same love and share with Him our treasures the way we do with our friends and family?

The Meanness of the Cross

To see Jesus as the “ultimate nice guy” serves as a stumbling block in our discipleship.  We preach Christ crucified: bloodied, beaten, coarse, and raw, rudely thrown up on the mean and cruel execution device of the Roman Legions.  We must learn to be like Christ through His Cross and our crosses as well.
