THE JOURNEY TO THE CROSS

“God said through the prophets that his Christ would suffer and die. And now God has made these things come true in this way.” ACTS 3:18

Jesus died … on purpose. No surprise. No hesitation. No faltering. You can tell a lot about a person by the way he dies. And the way Jesus marched to his death leaves no doubt: he had come to earth for this moment. Read the words of Peter. “Jesus was given to you, and with the help of those who don’t know the law, you put him to death by nailing him to a cross. But this was God’s plan which he had made long ago; he knew all this would happen” (Acts 2:23).

No, the journey to the Cross didn’t begin in Jericho. It didn’t begin in Galilee. It didn’t begin in Nazareth. It didn’t even begin in Bethlehem.

The journey to the Cross began long before. As the echo of the crunching of the fruit was still sounding in the garden, Jesus was leaving for Calvary.

    • We all need a reminder from time to time. It is amazing that He had really good things planned for our lives long before we wanted to live for Him. He was just waiting for us to come to Him and accept the free gift He had waiting for us.
