As we approach this coming Resurrection Weekend, I’m reminded of our Lord’s ultimate purpose on earth—He came to give His life as a ransom for us all. His whole purpose was to die for the sins of mankind—can we even fathom the gravity of that “call”—that purpose—that destiny? On Good Friday of this weekend we remember His death and rightly we should never forget! But thank God for resurrection power and for Pentecost! Not just that He died a gruesome and painful death but the same power that raised Christ from the dead quickens us and makes us alive in Him! And…that SAME power not only makes us alive but empowers us to do the same works He did! HALLELUJAH!
Which brings me to this dear reader—Do you know your God given call? You weren’t put on this earth to merely take up space or breathe air but God’s call upon your life is real and the sooner you begin pursuing the call, the greater impact you will have in this life!
I want to recommend our online school, www.cruseinstitute.org as a place to begin pursuing the call of God in your life! Even if you don’t have a place to minister at this point, your preparation for the call is vital!
We are currently preparing for our fall semester and want to remind everyone that Cruse Institute offers a Church Scholarship Program designed to provide instruction for current staff or interns.
School starts August 22nd—so don’t delay! Reach out to us ASAP! You will be glad you did!
In closing, I share this powerful verse in Romans 8:11 (AMPC)
And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you.
Happy and Blessed Resurrection Weekend!
Ps Joe and Becky Cruse
