The Triumph of Calvary: A Clarion Call to the Faithful

In this hour of history, fraught with the clamor of self and the din of pride, let us, the redeemed, be found with our boast not in the arm of flesh, nor in the trophies of our own making. Nay, let our glorying be singular in focus, pure in essence – the cross of Calvary, that old rugged cross, stained with the precious blood of the Lamb.

For it was there, upon that hallowed hill, where the greatest transaction of the ages was wrought. Love, that divine attribute, so pure and undefiled, met with justice, stern and unyielding. And in that holy embrace, mercy and truth kissed, righteousness and peace greeted each other with a holy kiss (Psalm 85:10).

Let us then, with lips touched by the coals of divine commission, trumpet not our own deeds, but herald the victory of our Lord. As Paul wrote, “But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world” (Galatians 6:14).

Oh, that we would be consumed with this singular passion, to make known the triumph of our Saviour! For what are our accolades but chaff in the wind, when weighed against the eternal weight of glory purchased on Calvary's tree? Let our hearts be affixed to this truth, our souls stirred by its reality, and our lives a testament to its power.

In a world ever seeking a sign, may we be a people pointing steadfastly to the cross, where love and justice, in the most profound of mysteries, met in a holy and eternal embrace. For this, and this alone, is worthy of our life's devotion, our soul's adoration, and our lip's proclamation.

Let us then rise, church of the living God, to this high and holy calling. Let the triumph of Calvary be ever on our lips, and the love it displayed be ever in our hearts, spurring us onward to live not for our own glory, but for His who called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.

“Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins” (1 John 4:10). In this, let us rejoice, not in ourselves, but in Him who loved us and gave Himself for us. Amen.
