Some people have the idea that when Jesus was here, he was a milquetoast kind of guy. Always soft in word and deed. Weak even. These are people who have never read these chapters.
Jesus is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. He is the Beginning and the End. Remember His night in Gethsemane, asking the Father if there was any other way to save us? He knew what was coming, but the only way our sins could be atoned for was the way set out before Him. Anyone who could go through with the Father’s plan is not weak. Anyone who could survive the flogging he suffered on the day he was crucified is not weak. Anyone who could forgive those who nailed Him to the cross, or those who mocked him as He hung there is not weak. Anyone who could defeat death and arise the third day is not weak.
The Jesus we read about today is a man’s man, the ultimate leader, and a Savior that I am happy to serve, follow and share with anyone who will listen.
