Journey to Jerusalem

From John 10:9-10:  “I am the gate.  Whoever enters by Me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture.  The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy,  I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”

Triumphantly

Jesus enters a joyous city

Jerusalem sings

Praising His name . . . Hosanna!

 

Witnessing

Emotional betrayal

Denying Christ

Then a rooster crows

 

Watching

Stunning procession fills the streets

Mocking with scorn

Would-be king, carrying our Cross

 

Hopes

Dashed by cruel Roman justice

Absent of sin

Son of Man, never to walk free

 

Numbness

With tears, seeing and hearing

Experiencing anguish

Horror at a blood-stained Cross

Silence

Covering the land, Father weeps

Messiah suffers

Many rejecting our Holy God

 

Hearing

Good News on Easter morning

Our Savior

Defeating sin and death

 

Empty

Dark tomb proclaims God’s plan

Jesus Christ

Risen!  Reigning forevermore

 

Connecting

Dots between manger and Cross

Our Father

Love for us never wanes

 

Lingering

In the shadow of a criminal’s cross

Singing Alleluia!

To lasting, true meaning of the Cross

 

Glory

Residing forever in the Cross

Good Shepherd

Caring for His precious flock

From Ephesians 2:8-10:  “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is a gift of God–not the result of works, so that no one may boast.  For we are what He has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.”
