Living a mindful crucified Christian life is one that is not easy. It is not merely a means of confession and profession of faith. Anyone is capable of confessing and professing Christ as their Lord and Savior. It is easy to proclaim one is born again and has tasted the new birth. Furthermore, many even proudly claim they are a new creation in Christ. Yet, when it comes to experience the wilderness of testing their faith - they wilt away. They faint and give up. And such faith that is not tested and refined is that which cannot be trusted.
Full of Grace and Truth
In choosing the mindful and crucified Christian life means we are choosing a life where we find strength and hope. Find the capacity to grow and learn how to live with peace and joy in a world full of despondence and despair. We are learning to become full of grace and truth by applying the principle truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ into our own lives. It is not an easy process either. It requires personal sacrifice and daily discipline. However, how great shall be our reward when we come before Christ and know of a surety, we are like Him - full of Grace and Truth.
Return to the Sacred Path
It does not matter one's social status or profession. What matters is knowing each one of us are fellow travelers dealing with personal fears, anxieties, insecurities, and entrenched trauma. While society places emphasis on worldly and material things as a means to define success and personal status - Jesus Christ places greater emphasis on the true path of righteousness that leads to true life.
Our Invitation to Learn of the Savior
Since learning requires us to become humble, open and teachable, it also requires us to understand that it is a process. Hence the reason we don't just learn from the Savior - we do exactly what the Savior taught by applying it in our lives and living it out daily. Without application - we are not growing in spirit and truth. If we are not growing spiritually by applying Gospel principles into our own lives, we are not bearing any true fruit. And if we are not bearing any true fruit - we may find ourselves withering away with the cares, anxieties, and worries of this world.
