Luke 9:51 (NIV)
“As the time approached for Him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem.”
As we are approaching Palm Sunday and Holy Week, I am thinking about what Jesus must have been thinking, feeling, and doing in the days and weeks leading up to His crucifixion. We read in Luke that as the time approached, Jesus was resolute.
resolute: admirably purposeful, determined, and unwavering.
Jesus knew what awaited Him in Jerusalem, yet He got His thoughts, feelings, and actions lined up with God’s will, and resolved to be obedient, all the way.
I love how the King James version uses the words, “set His face”:
“And it came to pass, when the time was come that He should be received up, He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem”
Are we setting our face toward the One who directs our path?
