See, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn him to death. – Matthew 20:18
Jesus didn’t look for trouble, but he knew his enemies were out to get him. It took a lot of courage for him to go to Jerusalem when he knew that he would be killed there. He was still afraid, but his courage helped him to do what he knew was right. He was still afraid, but his courage helped him to do what he knew was right. He knew the Father wanted him to spread the Good News, even when that meant giving himself up to death. Most of us will never be called on to give our lives for our faith, but we all need courage to do what is right. Today, ask God for the courage you need to do what is right.
