JESUS CRUX by: R.D. Tidwell Jesus Crux is a sobering reminder of our Christian duty to serve the Least of These, which many in the Body of Christ have abandoned in pursuit of lesser matters. If we wish to see the revival of the Christian Church, we must first see to it’s demolition. When we do the work of Christ - destroying the temple and building up people - then will the colossal power of the early Church awaken in us once more. Jesus Crux is not for the faint of heart, it is for the devoted abolitionist committed to overthrowing conventional beliefs and recapturing the heart of Christendom. Will you take up the Crux and follow Him? SIGN UP

"You have disregarded the weightier matters of the Law"

Matthew 23:23

Justice is defending the oppressed, taking up the cause of the fatherless, pleading the case of the widow, and protecting the foreigner. It is giving a cup of cold water to the thirsty. When justice is neglected by God's people, a curse falls upon their nation.

(Isaiah 1:17, Matthew 25:31-46, Deuteronomy 27:19)

Mercy is the forgiving of wrongs, cancelling of debts, restoring of relationships, and sacrifice of self. It is paying to fix what you did not break on behalf of the one who did. When mercy is neglected by the one who claims to know Christ, eternal wrath awaits their arrival.

(Matthew 6:14-15, Matthew 18:21-35, James 2:12-13)

Faithfulness is the endurance of hardship, devotion amidst apathy, obedience among opposition, and trust when we do not yet see. It is both running a marathon and finishing the race. When faithfulness is neglected by the disciple, they lose their promised reward.

(Galatians 6:9-10, Hebrews 11:1, James 1:6-7)

"Jesus revealed that His relationship with the Father was evidenced by both His words and His works. If the works of Christ stood as testimony of His relationship with the Father, why would it not be true of His disciples? If obeying the Fathers commands was the result of Christ’s faith, how could it not be the same for us?"
