The Cross-Shaped Life
In the first message of “The Cross-Shaped Life” series, "The Lamb," Pastor Dave Gustavsen takes a closer look at how Jesus, the Lamb of God, lived with great vulnerability. He didn’t play it safe, and exposed himself to harm and loss all the time. What might it look like for us to live with this same vulnerability? We could choose to take risks, rather than play it safe; we could humbly admit our weaknesses, rather than deny them; and we could love our enemies instead of attacking them.
Lent is a season of reflection, repentance, and preparation—a time to align our hearts with the heart of Jesus. And there is nothing more central to the heart of Jesus than the cross. This Lent, we’ll discover that the cross wasn’t just the way Jesus died; it was the way he lived. And we’ll hear his invitation to live the same way: following in his footsteps and sharing in his suffering, as we anticipate the joy of Easter.
