because he was teaching his disciples. He said to them, “The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men. They will kill him, and after three days he will rise.”
Jesus prophesied and told the disciples about His own death that was coming soon. Knowing that, Jesus still followed God perfectly, never sinned, and faced His death and suffering God’s wrath. If you knew when and how you would die in detail, would you try to avoid it or change it or make it less painful? Jesus courageously faced it and accepted the Father’s will for our sake.
Jesus, thank you! You died for me. I don’t deserve Your love and goodness, but You love me and care for me. Thank You for Your love and goodness. I will serve You till I die because You died for me and I love You. Teach me to be selfless like You. Even if it means death, give me the strength to never leave You, Jesus. In Your name. Amen.
