Thousands of years ago a city was built between those two mountains. The reason was obvious. The two mountains afforded a degree of protection and the confluence of two trade routes made it an ideal location for a settlement. That ancient city was called Shechem. Today we want to consider the History of this city and how it relates to us as Christians.
Our Daily Passion
“I am nailed to the cross with Christ. nevertheless I live; yet not I; but Christ liveth in me.” (Galatians 2:20)
It is only when the 'I' is crucified that Christ can manifest Himself within us. The Holy Spirit transforms us into the image of Christ day by day, and year by year, But the pathway of transformation from into the image of Christ is via the PASSION of the cross. “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.” (Luke 9:23) If we through the Spirit, allow the passion of the cross to put to death our self-life, we shall know the abundance of Christ's life, not otherwise.
We at PASSION Podcast desire to help others die to self and live for God daily through our Sermons, Devotionals, Scripture Studies, and Catechism Lessons that come from a Catholic perspective!
