Read Mt 20.17-19, Mk 10.32-34, Lk 18.31-34 – Can you imagine knowing how you were going to die? Knowing the exact day and method your enemies would kill you? I have to be honest, it would probably paralyze me and I would try to avoid it if at all possible. And if I couldn’t avoid my demise, I’d want to send my last days surrounded by family in quiet solitude. But Jesus marches straight into His destiny with resolve and confidence in His Father. And He spends those last fleeting days with 12 men that He had chosen to advance His kingdom when He was gone. He was faithful to His mission as the sacrifice for man’s depravity and ensuring His legacy would carry on through His disciples. He not only knew the end, He was faithful to the end. Are we resolved to finish well? Will the kingdom, not comfort, be our chief end to the end?
