Pastor Ray begins to lay a foundation for today’s message by defining theology, that is much more than an intellectual assertion. He goes goes to walk us through the crucifixion that Jesus went through and some of the worthies who preceded us. God will bring us to the end of ourselves and then must decide what to do, whether or not we will be crucified with Christ.
Will you be like Jesus, fully submitted and full of confidence in the Father, or will you avoid the crucifixion? This crucifixion isn’t optional but it can be shown false, if you fail to go through. Jesus wants to do this work in your heart, will you let Him?
