Going with Jesus to the Cross

“We have come again to passion tide, and again we collect our thoughts that we may understand what it means… imagesJesus knows what it means. It means debasement, revilement, and persecution. It means being misunderstood. It means hatred, death, the cross. And he chooses this way from the very outset. It is the way of obedience and the way of freedom, for it is the way of God… And we are going with him, as individuals and the church. We are the church beneath the cross. Let us realize that our kingdom, too, is not of this world”—Dietrich Bonhoeffer
