Jesus Resolutely Goes To Jerusalem (Luke 13:31-35)
Second Sunday of Lent, March 17, 2019
When Jesus decided to go to Jerusalem, it was a resolute decision that he was not going to change.
It was only because of his resolution that such a journey happened.
Jesus was rejected by all and had no personal incentive to finish the journey to Jerusalem and yet, despite the widespread rejection, he still went to complete his goal of our salvation by dying on the cross and rising from the grace on the third day.
He is also resolute to gather all those who have rejected him under his wings for protection and comfort.
It is only by God’s grace that we no longer reject Jesus and remain under his wings for all time.
