Daily Scripture Reading: Luke 9:21-27
“…The Son of Man must su er many things and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised.” Luke 9:22 (ESV)
Jesus never hesitates to ip our standards on their head.
At a time when His “public approval ratings” were at their peak, Jesus began to speak about an event that was still
to come. Christ’s life mirrored that of a train bound by the rails of His Father’s will and set to an exact destination on a hillside just outside Jerusalem. The trajectory of Jesus’ life delivered our destiny with Him in eternity.
Think about the ways you need to deny yourself and take up your cross today. Make a list of things that have got to go, and begin your journey toward that destination.
