Cross †raining is a basic discipleship course designed to develop a solid Biblical grounding for Christians in their early Christian walk. Ideally, this material should be led by a mentor. This twelve booklets are founded on Jesus’ summary of all the commandments in Mark 12:30-31.
And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. The second is this, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.
The scriptures integrate our relationship with God with the relationships with other people. We cannot grow in our relationship with God more than we are willing and able to grow in our relationship with other people. The opposite is true too. We cannot grow in our relationship with others any quicker than we grow closer to God.
Although this business term ‘redeemer’ (purchaser) seems impersonal, it actually plays an important part in strengthening our personal devotion to God. Once we comprehend what we are worth (nothing; deserving of judgment) and understand what God paid for us (Christ’s life), our hearts are moved by His love. Humbled by His love, we respond by joyfully serving others for His glorious name’s sake.
