Jesus’ Journey Is Mirrored By Our Own As We Proceed Toward Redemption

During the season of Lent we remember Jesus’ long journey to the cross. It wasn’t an easy path. Mixed with the friendships and miracles, Jesus encountered great need, stubborn disbelief, internal conflict among his followers, physical attack and betrayal, and finally a shameful death. During Lent we recognize that this was a necessary path – Jesus’ journey is mirrored by our own as we press on toward redemption.
