Job Chapter 29: The Truth About the Cross

The Truth About the Cross

Job, the maiden, and I were only looking at the negative side of the cross. We failed to comprehend what Paul referred to as, “always carrying the liability and exposure to the same death that the Lord Jesus suffered, so that the Resurrection Life of Jesus also may be shown forth by our lives” (II Corinthians 4:10).

When Jesus humbled Himself to the cross, he received dominion (Philippians 2:7-11). That is the positive side of the cross! Dominion, the possession of our inheritance! Yet, it will never be experienced without the cross!

When Jesus saw what faced Him, he simply asked the question: “The cup which the Father has given me, shall I not drink it?” (John 18:11).

Hmmm . . . when He speaks to your heart and asks the same question, how will you answer?
