cross training (CT): introduction

The recent Bible class quarter on spiritual disciplines in several of our adult classes at MoSt Church has stirred a number of us toward reflection on our commitment to Christ. Our Lord’s words are ringing in our ears:

“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” (Mark 8:34)

And so, we want to deliberately reflect on the heart of things here: the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ and the meaning of Christ crucified to our lives as His disciples.

With that in view, starting today and running though the end of February, you’ll see frequent posts here as we meditate on the Christ of the cross during this upcoming quarter’s classes. We’ll call this study “Cross Training” (CT). You’ll see virtually anything and everything cross-related posted here during that time. Quotes and excerpts from books regarding the cross to articles, commentary, devotional thoughts, and prayers.

Through it all, may God’s Spirit stir us all to know more deeply Christ and Him crucified. Amen.
