Room 14

 

 

 

 

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If any of you wants to be my follower,
you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me.

If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it.
But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.

–Matthew 16:24-25

YOU ARE AT A CROSSROADS

 

Look over the Journey you have just taken through the final days of Jesus to the cross and beyond. His was no accidental journey.
Every step Jesus took was purposeful, deliberate, by plan. Every moment of pain, betrayal, and agony was borne by Him out of love for you.
You were—and still are—a part of His journey.

What will you do with Jesus?

You can, in your heart, choose to hold on to your sin, bear the guilt yourself, and take it with you as you leave this prayer experience.
Or you can leave clinging to the extravagant love and forgiveness of the One who died for you. You’ve already pictured yourself nailing your sins to His cross.
You can leave knowing that all is forgiven.

It’s your choice. You choose by asking His forgiveness and receiving it.

You have experienced some of the emotions that Jesus, the Son of God, experienced for you. You can leave here the same as you were coming in.
Or you can leave having chosen to pursue Jesus Christ, the God who pursued you all the way to the cross.

It’s your choice. You choose by telling Him that your life is His.

You experienced the agony of surrender and obedience that Jesus Christ experienced. You can leave here still holding on to parts of your life, the parts you don’t want to surrender.
Or you can leave choosing to surrender everything to Him.

It’s your choice. You choose by praying the prayer of Gethsemane: “Yet not as I will, but as you will.”
