Hearing The Cries Of Calvary

6/25/2007

"The more we dwell where the cries of Calvary can be heard the more noble our lives become. Nothing puts life into men like a dying Savior." - Charles Spurgeon

Over the next few posts, I want to heed the wisdom of Mr. Spurgeon and take time to dwell where the cries of Calvary can be heard. Why? Nothing infuses life into our souls like seeing our dying Savior. Nothing sparks passion in our cold hearts like hearing the words that were uttered by Jesus as he hung suspended upon the wooden cross. Nothing creates passion for the Savior more than seeing the glory of Christ at the cross.

Do you want more love for Jesus? Do you long to feel extravagant devotion for Jesus and experience the joy of your salvation? Have you felt dry spiritually? When was the last time you listened to the words that were spoken upon Golgotha? When did you last meditate upon the final words of our Savior before His death. For me, it's been far too long.

I want more passion and zeal for Christ. I want to be consumed with one pure and holy passion: to serve Jesus with a joyful exuberance. Therefore, I'm going to spend time dwelling at the foot of the cross.
