He knew the praises of the people would be short lived;
that within a few days He would be condemned to death.
He knew that even His closest friends would desert Him because of the fear of others-
the fear of man.
He knew how much He would have to suffer
the innocent Son of God,
the Passover Lamb,
the Good Shepherd,
and yet He still headed towards Jerusalem,
according to God's will as written in the Old Testament.
He knew but,
He headed there anyway because of obedience
and because of God's love for us-
rebellious, sinful us.
Today, as I was listening to the Stations of the Cross,
I thought of just how much God loves me
just how much He loves
He didn't just say it;
He proved it.
