Back to the Cross, by Renee Peebles

Back to the Cross

Lately, The Holy Spirit has been reminding me what my human nature is like apart from Christ. It's not been very pretty, in fact it's been "pretty" ugly. A critical spirit, a judgemental attitude, an accusing tone, a hopeless view towards some. Sometimes I forget who I was and where I was before Christ. When this happens I can appear to others as an arrogant "know it all" thinking I know what is best for everyone else. Simply put, I just get too far away from the Cross. God in His infinite mercy and grace has to take me back to the Cross from time to time to remind me that it's not about me, it's ALL about HIM! There is nothing good in my flesh apart from Christ in me. I am so glad He keeps taking me back and never gives up on me. So how about you, how long since you've been back to the Cross?
