Way of the Cross

The way UP is DOWN…
The way OVER is UNDER…
The way to SUCCESS is through FAILURE…
The way to true PROSPERITY is through spiritual BANKRUPTCY…
The way to the true RICHES, is through POVERTY…
The way to VICTORY, is through DEFEAT…
The way to LIFE, is through DEATH.

And therefore, for the people of the UPWARD WAY God has set before us a very clear pattern and example:

“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God (Or, ‘He did not consider that equality with God was something He should grasp after’): but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name” (Phil. 2:5-9).

-George Warnock (Beauty for Ashes Part 1)
