The Capital City Faith

The Capital City Faith…

Why did Jesus die and rise in Jerusalem? Jerusalem is the capital city, the center of Israel, and of everything Jewish.

It’s the center of the Law; of the worship of God. It was the center of offerings, sacrifices and gifts. It was the center of the priesthood. Jerusalem was connected to every part of Israel because it was the center, and every part of Israel was connected to Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is the center of world news; of world history. It’s the center of really everything. Jesus died and rose in Jerusalem because Jerusalem is the center, and Jesus is the central figure of history and the central event of eternity.

This central fact has to be the center of our lives. It took place in Jerusalem to tell us it’s the center. It has to be the center of our hearts. There’s only one center, Jesus crucified and risen. It all happened in Jerusalem.

Whatever is there, that’s the center. Come back to Calvary, because when the center becomes your center, then everything else in your life will fall into place.

“We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!” Matthew 20:18-19

Today make the central fact of God’s love for you, the Cross, the center of your day, your heart, your emotions, and everything you do.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
