TAKE ME TO CALVARY. “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the …. (Romans 8:13).
Calvary is an open-air representation of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and an experience of intense mental and bodily torture inflicted on Him by His foes. He was put on that old rugged cross, not for His sins but that of human race. Calvary represents a watershed place and moment where evils are dumped at the feet of Jesus permanently and never picked up again.
Paul Apostle said in Gal 2:20: ‘I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me….’ Unfortunately we see born-again Christians sliding back to those stinking behaviours again. Most often they do so never to return to God again, O what a loss! Most often such people are helplessly and silently crying: ‘TAKE ME TO CALVARY AGAIN.’
The number one enemy of every man is the flesh, and ironically, it’s the closest and fondest part of a man’s life. The flesh does contrary to the Spirit and vice versa (Rom 7:19) and we know that the product of the works of the flesh is death (Rom 8:13). The works of the flesh as stated in Gal 5: 19-21 can be very sweet and appealing to the body now, but they are like ‘tsetse fly’ with dangerous repercussion.
When you honestly identify lack of zeal for spiritual things and a low commitment to spiritual sacrifices, it’s time to swiftly head to Calvary. When those things that bring you ‘joy’ in the Holy Ghost are now being rationalised away with mundane nuances, danger is ahead and you need to run back to Calvary. When you start to say good morning to those things you’ve once said good night to, Beloved, it’s a sign to run to Calvary.
At Calvary all sins are forgivable and there’s no name calling, backsliders are restored and eagles are made to soar again. The biggest mistake you can make is accepting Satan’s lie that you cannot be restored again. It’s at Calvary we drop all our sins and pick the garment of a new man in Christ Jesus. Let every Believer make a regular visit to the place for an experience of death to carnality and strength to a new life in Christ Jesus.
