Triumph

Is achieved through the laying down of lives.

Firstly, historically, definitively: the Lord Jesus shedding his blood at the hands of Roman soldiers, giving himself as a ransom for many.

Then daily, experientially by us disciples, as we embrace humility, walk as servants and love not our lives even unto death.

We’re seeds – unless we’re dead and buried a triumphant life will never spring up.

“Lord, thank you for your cross, what would it mean for me to take up mine today?”
