Friday Fifth Week of Lent

Jesus did not waver, he was not just a big talker. Jesus was all in, he was willing to do whatever it took. Jesus knew exactly what was coming and yet he did not hide, he did not try to find another way, he willingly followed the Fathers plan. Jesus came into the city on Palm Sunday loud and proud proclaiming the word of God, while on the other side of town a battalion of Roman soldiers was arriving to try and keep things under control. Jesus knew all of this, but he kept his eyes on his Father and did exactly what needed doing. Everything Jesus did was for us.
There’s a place where sin and shame
Are powerless
Where my heart has peace with God
And forgiveness
Where all the love I’ve ever found
Comes like a flood
Comes flowing down
