March 18

“They were on their way up to Jerusalem, with Jesus leading the way, and the disciples were astonished, while those who followed were afraid. Again he took the Twelve aside and told them what was going to happen to him.”  Mark 10:32 (NIV)

Jesus was on his way from Jericho to Jerusalem. I am impressed by the difference in the attitude of Jesus and of His followers. His followers were afraid, no doubt thinking of His enemies in Jerusalem who were looking for a chance to get rid of Him. But what about Jesus? He was not afraid. He knew He had come to die for the sins of the world and He explained again to His disciples what would happen. Aren’t we glad that Jesus went all the way to the cross!
