Following Jesus' triumphant journey into Jerusalem this past Sunday, events have turned and today persecuted and beaten, and faces the long walk to Golgotha with a cross so heavy, it must feel like the weight of the world.
You have come with him to this place.
Is it your intention to continue to follow Jesus?
Yes? Then let us walk with him this day.
