|Every dream passes through the cross.
Every dream takes you to where you let go of everything and everyone, every agenda and expectation, and then it is only as the Lord resurrects you and your dream that you can go on. We spend much of our time and energy trying to avoid that place.
We want just enough of Jesus to make us happy, just enough to give us peace, and just enough to make things go our way to fulfill our dreams and our agenda. Meanwhile, He wants to take us to the cross, where our selfish dreams, egos and plans for “great accomplishments” have to die.
The cross brings you to a place of total and absolute surrender of all you have and all you are. (Chip Ingram)
