A Place Called There

They brought Jesus to the place called Golgotha  Mark 15:22-32 Ever been there? It’s a place where there is no “life” and the life you do encounter, passes by to mock, scorn and abuse. It’s been my experience that from a physical point of view this is a tough place to be. Everything seems to get worse before it gets better. If you remain too long you begin to feel like those dried bones for which the place Golgotha is named. We don’t always have the choice not to be there. However, it’s times like these when we must remember to put aside where we are and continue to rejoice in who we are. We live in the spirit of Christ. We find our strength in God’s faithfulness and knowledge of him. For although physically, places like these are everywhere, spiritually in Christ we rise, move and have our being.

Be strong and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the Lord Psalm 31:24
