CROSS-FIRE

 
"Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that all who believe may have eternal life in Him." —John 3:14-15
 

"When I behold the wondrous cross on which the King of glory died, my richest gain I count but loss and pour contempt on all my pride." These words from a traditional hymn are my prayer for you today.

May you see in a new way the cross and the One Who hung and died on it for love of you. May the cross be a prophecy which penetrates, divides, and judges the thoughts and reflections of your heart (Heb 4:12). Through the cross, may you be crucified to the world and the world to you (Gal 6:14). May this celebration of the Exaltation of the Cross be the occasion for breakthroughs in the hearts of millions throughout the world and breakdowns of the strongholds of the evil one (see 2 Cor 10:4). Today, may Jesus, Who has been lifted up on the cross, draw all people to Himself (Jn 12:32).

"Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim, till all the world adore His sacred name."

 
Prayer: Father, may my life be accurately described as the triumph of the cross.
Promise: "At Jesus' name every knee must bend in the heavens, on the earth, and under the earth, and every tongue proclaim to the glory of God the Father: JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!" —Phil 2:10-11
Praise: When Kevin cannot find the words to pray, he simply gazes upon a crucifix.
