unforgettable visit


December 2015 (11)Mark 15:21-25

21 And they forced a passer-by, Simon of Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to carry his cross. 22 And they brought him to the place called Golgotha (which means Place of a Skull). 23 And they offered him wine mixed with myrrh, but he did not take it. 24 And they crucified him and divided his garments among them, casting lots for them, to decide what each would take. 25 And it was the third hour when they crucified him.

unforgettable visit

Simon was just visiting Jerusalem from the country. He got caught up in an event that was bigger than anything he expected. Years later (it is conjectured) both he and his two sons are Christians. Simon saw Jesus on that unforgettable visit. He carried the cross that was to be the instrument of Jesus’ death. What would convince Simon to give his life to Jesus? He was as certain as anyone could be that Jesus actually died. He must have witnessed solid proof that Jesus rose from the tomb as well.

What would it take for you to commit yourself and your family to Jesus?

LORD, thank you for dying for us. Show us how to live for you.
