-The Nails Of The Cross-
“All of us carry the nails of the cross in our pocket,” Martin Luther wrote.
How easily we crucify Him!
*By subtly moving Him to the peripheral of our conversation when it is embarrassing to be identified with Christ.
*By compromising His principles when it is to our advantage to hedge the truth.
*By smugly taking credit for accomplishments that would have been impossible without His help.
We would never physically crucify Christ. Of course. But how often do we subtly abandon Him when identifying with Him would jeopardize our peace, prosperity, or social standing?
Yes… we, “carry the nails of the cross in our pocket.”
“Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.”
Have a thoughtful Thursday
