Crucifixion and Resurrection

We spend each day negotiating between the bad things that occur... which are the crucifixions of our life... or the tough moments which bring us down. In those circumstances we know the ones who crucify us and also the ones we crucify. But at the same time... we experience resurrection... the good things or the victories of our lives! These are the unexpectd joyous moments which show up and give our hearts and lives a lift. They both are critical to the balance of our lives... We must experience crucifixtion and resurrection just as Jesus did. There is nothing we will go through that He has not gone through first!
