A FRESH WALK UP CALVARY’S HILL
TEXT: ZECHARIAH 13:1
MARK 15:15-37

MAN WAS LOST WITH NO HOPE
IN ORDER FOR MAN TO BE SAVED, THERE HAD TO BE CALVARY!

WE READ AND HEAR ABOUT THE PAIN AND SUFFERINGS OF OUR LORD, BUT IT WAS THE ONLY WAY.

TALK A LITTLE ABOUT THE SUFFERINGS
HEBREWS 9:22 “AND ALMOST ALL THINGS ARE BY THE LAW PURGED WITH BLOOD; AND WITHOUT SHEDDING OF BLOOD IS NO REMISSION.”

BUT IN ORDER FOR US TO BE SAVED, WE HAD TO TAKE THE SAME WALK BY FAITH UP CALVARY’S HILL

WE HAD TO KNEEL BENEATH THIS FOUNTAIN OF LIFE GIVING BLOOD!

WHEN WE FIRST WALKED UP CALVARY’S HILL AND KNELT…
WE HAD JOY
WE HAD LOVE
WE HAD PEACE

WE STILL HAD TROUBLE BUT WE HAD FOUND A PLACE OF REFUGE!

OUR HEARTS WOULD MELT AT THE MENTION OF GOD’S WORD.

BUT IF SEEMS TO ME THAT IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE WE HAVE BEEN BACK TO CALVARY

WE DON’T HAVE THE JOY WE USE TO HAVE
WE CAN HEAR SOMEONE PREACH ABOUT HOW JESUS DIED FOR US AND WE’RE NOT MOVED!

THERE WAS A TIME WHEN WE HAD A SONG IN OUR HEARTS, BUT NOW WE DREAD SONG SERVICE!

THE PREACHING, SINGING, TESTIFING, DOESN’T AFFECT US ANYMORE.

FRIEND WE NEED TO TAKE ANOTHER TRIP TO CALVARY
WE NEED TO KNEEL AT THE CROSS ONE MORE TIME!
PSALM 50:12 “RESTORE UNTO ME THE JOY OF THY SALVATION; AND UPHOLD ME WITH THY FREE SPIRIT.”
CALVARY STILL HAS POWER
CALVARY’S POWER HASN’T BEEN DIMINISHED OR WEAKENED.

THERE’S STILL POWER TO…
SAVE, HEAL, STRENGTHEN, AND DELIEVER

IF BACKSLIDERS WOULD HAD ONLY REALIZED ALL THEY WOULD HAD TO DO WAS JUST GONE BACK TO CALVARY, THEY WOULDN’T BE BACKSLIDDEN

IT’S THERE AT CALVARY…
WE ARE STRENGHTENED, WE RECEIVE VICTORY OVER THE ENEMY, OUR BURDENS ARE MADE LIGHT

OH TONIGHT IF WE COULD ALL JUST KNEEL BENEATH THIS FLOOD, AND LET OUR WOUNDS AND DISSAPPOINTMENS BE HEALED

YOU SAY…
I HAVE NO PEACE-GO TO CALVARY
I HAVE NO JOY-GO TO CALVARY
I’VE BEEN WOUNDED AND MY SOUL IS BLEEDING-GO TO CALVARY

HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN SINCE YOU’VE BEEN TO CALVARY?!?

IT’S AT CALVARY THE LORD IS TRYING TO HELP YOU
STORY OF BOY TRYING TO SAVE MOM

THE LORD IS SAYING I’M TRYING, I’M TRYING-GO TO CALVARY

CALVARY HAS ROOM FOR EVERYONE. THOUGH MILLIONS HAVE COME THERE’S STILL ROOM FOR ONE

WHEN I THINK OF ALL THE WRETCHED MEN AND WOMEN THAT HAVE KNELT AT CALVARY AND HOW CALVARY CHANGED THEIR LIVES
JOHN NEWTON-WRITER OF “AMAZING GRACE”
WRITER OF “THERE IS A FOUNTAIN”

YOU MAY GO ASTRAY FROM CALVARY, BUT ONCE YOU HAVE BEEN THERE YOU WILL NEVER BE THE SAME!

WOULD ANYBODY LIKE TO TAKE A FRESH WALK UP CALVARY’S HILL TONIGHT?

GET A FRESH LOVE FOR THE LORD!
