Day 13: What Do you Have to Lose?


40 days, 40 nights

Jesus fasted.

You and me

40 days 40 nights

Fasting from those things that weigh us down.

How many pounds have you shed

by Putting off and Putting on?

How did Jesus do it?

Yes, He is Jesus so it seems easy for Him...

But how~

"Because He never lost sight to where He was headed…that exhilarating finish in and with God…He could put up with anything along the way; Cross, shame, whatever. And now He’s there in the place of honor, right alongside God.Hebrews 12 (The Message)

How did Jesus do it?

His eyes FIXED on His destination...

The CROSS~

“the cross covers and embraces the deepest sorrows and suffering that has reached the human heart." (Chuck Smith)

He knew what was going to happen on that cross...

and He did it anyway...

Because He fixed His eyes beyond the cross~

His eyes were focused on us!

Jesus PUT off a lot, so He could PUT Salvation on us.

“The heart of salvation is the Cross of Christ. The reason salvation is so easy to obtain is that it Cost God so much." (Oswald Chambers)
