Go With Your Heart, Day 7

Today’s reading is drawn from Mark 16:10.

Tears represent the heart, the spirit, and the soul of a person. To put a lock and key on your emotions is to bury part of your Christlikeness!

Especially when you come to Calvary.

You can’t go to the Cross with just your head and not your heart. It doesn’t work that way. Calvary is not a mental trip. It’s not an intellectual exercise. It’s not a divine calculation or a cold theological principle.

It’s a heart-splitting hour of emotion.

Don’t walk away from it dry-eyed and unstirred. Don’t just straighten your tie and clear your throat. Don’t allow yourself to descend Calvary cool and collected.

Please . . . pause. Look again.

Those are nails in those hands. That’s God on that cross. It’s us who put him there.

from No Wonder They Call Him the Savior
