Day 2 – Journey to the Cross – Pastor Kevin Lautar

Greeting First Family!

Today’s Code word is Probe This is a different word that we do not use often in our everyday conversation.  This word means to search into or examine something closely. Applying this concept to our spiritual journey, we are to probe our actions, motives and will against the model given to us in Scripture. We can ask probing questions such as, “Am I living for myself or for the Lord?” or “Is the way I treat others motivated out of self-gain or am I truly interested in living a life that benefits others?”

When we ask these probing questions, we begin to understand ourselves better and our motives come to the surface. Our motives give us a window into our heart. We begin to see the areas of our heart that are not like Christ. Then we can begin to address those areas of our heart that are far away from God by repenting of the sin and changing our minds to be like Christ.

I pray that today is full of probing questions for you and the Lord to start to peer into your heart and make progress on your Journey to the Cross. Our verse of the day is actually a prayer. So, let’s pray together with the Psalmist from Psalm 139:23-24, “Search me, O God, and know my heart…See if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way of everlasting.” Amen!

See y’all soon! God Bless!

Pastor Kevin
