The cross of Christ does not allow for nominal followers…
For no one is “half-crucified.”
He did not leave His royal splendor to secure our mediocrity.
His blood did not spill hot so that we might remain lukewarm.
His body was not broken to give us lives of mere ease.
His sacrifice does not remove our call
to do the same: to sacrifice.
Our Master, the One who died for us, demands we die to self for Him as well.
What are you holding back from the nails?
