Matthew 20:18-19, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn Him to death, and shall deliver Him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify Him: and the third day He shall rise again.
Our Lord couldn’t spell it out any plainer than this. This is the 4th time He’s told His disciples what’s going to happen to Him and they still don’t get it!
Let’s think about the significance of what He’s said. Jesus went their deliberately to die for me and you! That was God’s plan from the beginning and this Is Something To Think About! Today, I deliberately plan to serve Him! How about you?
