weekly scripture reflection
Jesus saw clearly that his path would lead to death on a cross. He knew that it wasn’t possible for a person to die peacefully who spoke against injustice and named those who benefited from the exploitation of their own people. Jesus also understood that the cross was more than an ending. Beyond the cross was resurrection, through which God would break humanity’s enslavement to sin and death. Jesus calls us, as his followers, to see that his way of self-giving love is the only path that leads to a life worth wanting.
Why does Jesus call his followers to take up their cross? What do you think he mean?
How can the way of the cross lead to life and blessing?
