I can relate to this passage because I know the feeling of needing hope in a situation that feels like a disaster. Knowing that God has a plan of good things for me in this life helps me to keep moving forward even when I'm feeling down.
God’s Greatest Blessings
Friday, March 13, 2009
“The Son of Man will die, just at the Scriptures say.”
God’s greatest blessings often come costumed as disasters. Any doubters need to do nothing more than ascend the hill of Calvary.
Jerusalem’s collective opinion that Friday was this: Jesus is finished. What other conclusion made sense? The religious leaders had turned him in. Rome had refused to bail him out. His followers had tucked their tails and scattered. He was nailed to a cross and left to die, which he did. They silenced his lips, sealed his tomb, and, as any priest worth the price of phylactery would tell you, Jesus is history. Three years of power and promises are decomposing in a borrowed grave. Search the crucifixion sky for one ray of hope, and you won’t find it.
Such is the view of the disciples, the opinion of the friends, and the outlook of the enemies.
But God is not surprised. His plan is right on schedule. Even in—especially in—death, Christ is still the king, the king over his own crucifixion.
