The Road to Jerusalem

He keeps walking toward Jerusalem. His feet like lead, heavily putting one foot in front of the other. He knows what will happen and Jesus goes anyway.

As the Son of God He has set His love upon us so He keeps moving closer.

As the Son of Man He bends His will to the Father walking in full obedience. The wonder of it all. The grotesque brutality and suffering and pain.

Jesus did not walk into His purpose blindly, caught off guard. He understood the cost. Jesus, sorrowful yet determined to fulfill prophecy and redeem all mankind.

Firm, resolved, focused on the task at hand. History was made that day.

Calvary.
