This Sunday we come to the fourth of our five sermons on Gary Moon’s Apprenticeship With Jesus. To apprentice with Jesus is to imitate the Lord’s life, to let him, by the grace of the Holy Spirit, live the fullness of his life in us. There is, then, another central component to the imitation of the Lord’s life, a component the Lord enjoins on all his followers, a component about which the apostle themselves testified in their New Testament letters. That component is the cross, sharing in the Lord’s sufferings. There is no true imitation of Jesus apart from imitating him on his cross. This Sunday let’s go all in, knowing that the crosses the Lord calls us to bear always redound to our resurrection and the experience of new life.
