“See, We Are Going Up to Jerusalem”
Jesus said it over and over and we read it over and over and we hear it over and over: to walk in his way, the way that leads to life, is to walk in the way of self-emptying service and sacrifice.
To walk in his way is to walk in his truth that leads to his life.
So, give us grace and strength to walk in the way of Jesus, wherever it may lead us.
“While Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside by themselves, and said to them on the way, ‘See, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn him to death; then they will hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified; and on the third day he will be raised.’” (Matthew 20:17-19)
