The cross is the transportation, it’s not the destination. So many believers make their destination the cross, and stay there. Can I elaborate on what I mean? The cross marks the way Jesus died, it symbolizes Jesus’ atonement. Some believers get saved due to what the cross symbolizes, and make that their stopping point. The death, burial and resurrection of Christ was never meant to be your destination point… It was created to be the entry point.
The cross is the transportation to the Kingdom of God and the beginning in our faith walk in Christ. After Jesus’ resurrection, even Jesus came back with an assignment to teach his disciples. Act 1:3 KJV, to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.
Here’s my point with that scripture, to illustrate that even Jesus had a destination beyond the cross, so we shouldn’t make our destination there as well. Our destination isn’t salvation; salvation is the essential first step, but it is still a step. There’s life after the cross, there’s a destination after the salvation. That destination is to GO. Go and make disciples, go to Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth being a witness to the Kingdom of God (Acts 1:8). Fulfill God’s purpose by discovering your purpose. Use each and every talent your father has giving you to become a witness to his Kingdom, by displaying the love he has freely given to you. Now that you have obtained Fire Insurance (Salvation), it’s now time to obtain Life Insurance (Winning Souls). So, begin to write those books, create those businesses, make those songs, establish opportunities to serve others and keeping pressing toward the destination.
