    Power of the Cross to Redeem and Transform

    Power of the Cross to Redeem and Transform
    Power of the Cross
    At the Last Supper Jesus explained what would happen to his body and blood on the cross and why these things were important. Foretelling that his body would be broken on the cross, Jesus blessed the bread and broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is my body” (Matthew 26:26). His body would be beaten and pierced through so we could have access to the Father and our bodies could be made whole. His followers would be blessed by recognizing and connecting with the body of Christ. His blood was poured out for the forgiveness of sins and to establish the New Covenant. He told the disciples to drink the cup of wine, “For this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins” (Matthew 26:28). His blood is the New Covenant, and it is powerful for the forgiveness of sins. His sacrificial death on the cross would fulfill the law which thousands of animal sacrifices over the centuries could not do. This study examines two fundamental benefits of Jesus dying on the cross: redemption and transformation.

    Live Victoriously through Servanthood

    Live Victoriously
    There are battles to be fought in this world, but victory abides within believers. You can be victorious in every situation. “Thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ” (2 Corinthians 2:14). Your victory over every enemy is based on three essential elements: the blood of Jesus, words of faith and sacrificial living. “They overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death” (Revelation 12:11). This study deals with the third essential element for victory, not loving their lives. It relates to how believers regard their own lives in the midst of battles. Those who do not love their lives are willing to sacrifice everything, even their very lives. They trust the Lord and value his life more than their own.
