Prime Time with God

Today's Prime Time talks about how we are to go to the cross, but yet we often come down from it. Being of the flesh makes it easy at times to come off the cross. We are easily persuaded by Satan at times.

We need to strengthen ourselves in the Lord and avoid coming off our cross. He is the begining of the message. You can click on the link on the side bar to read the rest.

" ... come down from the cross and save yourself!" (Mark 15:30).

"God calls each of us to the cross in order for all the things that are alive in our flesh to die. Daily we are invited by the enemy of our souls to love ourselves and come away from the cross.

What are the signs that you have come off the cross? When you are overly concerned with appearance, you have come off the cross. When the words of others cause you to react and defend, you have come off the cross. When you strive to have your world in perfect order, you have come off the cross. When you complain about circumstances, you have come off the cross.

Is this good or what? Very powerful message.


The way of the cross means letting go and letting God have His way in every matter, every relationship, every outcome."

Oh yes, Omah; this is a very good message. It's true and I think many more need to understand it better. Those who are young followers may not realize, some of those who've followed for years still aren't seeing the truth of this message.

It's not about do's and do not's, or about rules. It's about finding freedom in the Cross. It's about really LIVING and being FREE of the flesh that drags us down. It's about Glorifying, bringing our life to Him for such freedom.

So many misunderstand the message of release. They think that they are losing their self, when in fact they are BUT! they're gaining a better understanding of themselves in God's eyes; which is FAR better than anything we could see in ourselves. Amen??!

Thanks for sharing this ;o).

Your welcome Heather. Thanks for your comments. Yes, I agree that many do misunderstand. Let's hope that more will get to know the real meaning.

Neat! Cody and I were just talking about sins. As I always tell him, I always think and tell myself that whenever I sin or if ever I do, I always say, "Will GOD be pleased by this?" or "I don't want to hurt GOD because before hurting anyone, I'd first hurt HIM." I don't know why I'm saying this. hehehe! So before coming off the cross, let's ask ourselves first.

The signs are so true. We are being put in trials and temptations everyday. And everyday, we need GOD's Word to guide us. Every time something comes up, I always think of what GOD says in HIS Word.

The way of the cross means letting go and letting God have His way in every matter, every relationship, every outcome. ~>I VERY MUCH agree!

Thank you for this post. Very powerful. The lost and even Christians need this. We need to be enlightened everyday and this is a good one for enlightenment and even for rebuke!
