The truth is I want quick fit spirituality,
short cuts to the mountain tops,
your authority without your service,
your glory without your suffering.
And I confess,
I'm proud and lazy and self obsessed,
can't see past my need to be blessed.
I find it hard to prefer others, when I want to be served,
I know the first shall be last but for first place I thirst.
To take the role of the servant, is my way.
So follow my example to heaven's high way.
To take up one's cross is the crux, and it will cost all,
for life to be full it must be lost and that's the gospel.
Onwards and upwards to that resurrection time,
Cometh the hour, of renewed body and renewed mind.
Where we'll be fully immersed, baptised in the Holy Spirit Sea
but for now washed feet,
show i'm head to toe clean.
Even though we are not able to gather together in person this Easter, we'll be looking to encourage you throughout Holy Week in a number of ways.
You can tune into daily online devotions like this one, book a one-hour prayer slot in our virtual 24/7 prayer room and watch our Good Friday and Easter Sunday services.
So, whatever your experience of church or faith, we pray that this Easter time will be a special time.
