Meditating on the Cross Will Change Your Life!series: Best Easter Sermons
The invitation of God is to wait on cross with Jesus. It is hopeful, courageous, confident way of being. Standing in the world erect, facing the reality that surrounds us. With all our hearts – remain in relationship, in communion, waiting, listening, open before God. Distractions serve to numb the pain of waiting, of despair and lack of faith; i.e. – addictions, busyness, denial, blaming others, self loathing, bitterness. This approach is not centered in the love of the Father and it takes us away from our true selves. Thus we miss what God is doing in us.
