As we approached Resurrection Sunday, we prepare our hearts by contemplating Jesus, our Lord and Savior. We often think of His rich love toward the lost, His grace so powerful that it led Him to lay down His life for us. But we forget that Jesus was fiercely determined to go to the cross. Though He face mockery and betrayal by a trusted comrade, though He was taunted and scorned by the very ones for whom He would give Himself up as a sacrifice, though none of us deserved it, Jesus was bound and determined to go to the cross. His face set like a flint (according to the Old Testament’s description) just like those who must rush into battle, rush into a burning building, or rush into the Twin Towers on 9/11 to rescue those who are perishing.
Join us as we examine the toughness of our Savior as He aggressively faced the torture to come out of His incredible love for us.
