CITC – Skewen

Easter

Thought for this Week:

One of the incredible abilities of Jesus was to stay on target. His life never got off track. He kept his life on course. As Jesus looked across the horizon of his future, he could see many targets. Many flags were flapping in the wind, each of which he could have pursued. He could have been a political revolutionary. He could have been content to be a teacher and educate minds. But in the end he chose to be the Saviour and save souls.

Anyone near Christ for any length of time heard it from Jesus himself. “The Son of Man came to find the lost people and save them” (Luke 19:10 NCV). The heart of Christ was relentlessly focused on one task. The day he left the carpentry shop of Nazareth he had one ultimate aim – the cross of Calvary. He was so focused that his final words were, “It is finished” (John 19:30 NCV)
