Applying the Work of The Cross

Truth in Love – blog entry – Monday, December 10, 2012

Recently, God spoke to me about how we, meaning His people, including myself, do not fully comprehend, nor can we, the full power afforded us and the depth of the work done on the cross. What I heard most prominently was that we needed to “Apply the work of the Cross.” to our various situations and prayers. What did/does that translate to in tangible everyday use? When we are in a situation where we do not know what to do, where we cannot seem to overcome, where or when temptation seems so great, when we do not know the proper direction or path to take in life, etc. we need to simply call out to God the Father with a simple prayer of… ‘Father God, in the name of Jesus, apply the work of the cross to this situation and I thank you for the power and work of the cross; in Jesus name I pray, Amen.’

Spiritual/Political Disclaimer:

This blog will not be for the faint of heart or the easily offended. It will not be in any way politically correct. It will make every effort to share the truth in love, [Ephesians 4:11-16], to a decaying and dying society and church. I share what I share not to hurt, harm, or offend any person[s] or group; I do it because Christ’s Standard and Truth is not being represented by enough of His Followers and I do it out of love. I love enough to tell His Truth.

Ephesians 4:11-16 NKJV

11And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
