Sometimes I think we miss the point of the cross. We focus so much on what Jesus did for us, that we miss what Jesus was inviting us into.
I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. (John 12:24)
The cross is a way station, an interchange in the journey. But it is NOT the destination. We often focus on the dying part but in doing so we often miss the growth part. Jesus is showing us our barrier and saying, I dare you to remove it, so you can discover the beautiful image that is hidden inside.
What is Jesus calling you to remove in order to discover something bigger?
