Jesus tells us that trouble is coming. ItΓÇÖs not a matter of if but when. But Jesus, knowing that the suffering was necessary to accomplish His mission, fixed His focus on something greater.
The foundation of the Christian faith is that Jesus overcame death, leaving behind an empty tomb and pressing ahead with a new life through resurrection. Though nothing can shake that foundation, the tremors of lifeΓÇÖs ever-changing circumstances can leave us fixed on nothing but our troubles.
ΓÇ£For the LambΓÇ¥ is a reminder that in those moments, Jesus invites us to lift our heads; to fix our eyes on Him just as He fixed His eyes on the Cross. Though He died on that cross, He would soon rise from the grave so that we might have new life.
Most high and lifted up. Be glorified forever. Jesus has overcome. Declare it now together.
One day, we will have the opportunity to declare HeavenΓÇÖs perspective of our troubles, together with a chorus of angels, shouting about the everlasting love that has won the battle for our salvation.
