The Character of Champions: Released at the Cross
What makes a champion? Is it physical ability? Or is it something else that strengthens our commitment to \run with endurance the race that is set before us" (Heb. 12:1)? That "something else" is character-the willingness to do the right thing when everything around you is going wrong. And no one modeled it better than Jesus in Gethsemane the night before His crucifixion: "Nevertheless, not what I will, but what you will" (Mark 14:36).
All of us have faced a pivotal moment which required us to choose between God's way and our own. The two teachings in this album celebrating Good Friday and Easter illustrate how the Cross is the Holy Spirit's primary instrument for shaping our character. In "Bring Your Struggling to the Cross,"we see how Father God invites us to bring our struggles before Him where He can turn them into an unimaginable outbreak of His redemptive work. Then, in "The Comeback Champion,"the story of Peter teaches us that God never loses patience with people who try to walk in a miracle and then slide back, say the wrong things, or outright deny Him.
Contains two messages: "Bring Your Struggling to the Cross" (Mark 14:32-36) and "The Comeback Champion" (1 Corinthians 15:1, 3-8; Luke 24:33-34).
