Luke 9:51 As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem.
No one has ever experienced anything like it, LORD! Most need to read the story over a couple of times. Myself? I have my moments when nothing will stop me from doing what it is I want to accomplish. But I also have moments when I’m easily deterred or distracted from my goals. Yet with you, nothing would or could stop you. As Paul mentioned…nothing can separate us from the love of Christ (Romans 8). What wondrous love, Jesus! With me in mind, you allowed yourself to be killed in order to accept the punishment I deserve. Your love never stops flowing! Your cup of forgiveness runs over! Empower me to be resolute in my quest to follow your will and to share your love with everyone in my life. My faith clings to you, Lord Jesus. Amen.
