How many of us would have devised the cross as God’s way of salvation? Probably none of us. We want a theology of glory more than a theology of the cross. That’s why Judas betrayed Jesus and the crowd chose Barabbas. And yet… the cross is the power of God for salvation.
As we consider Christ’s sacrificial and atoning death on the cross, remember what he endured for you… and it wasn’t pretty.
The Triumphal Entry may have begun on Palm Sunday while Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem, but it was fulfilled on Good Friday when he carried his cross.
