The Road

This series will follow Jesus through the final week of his life as he walked a road that led to Golgotha. During that final week, Jesus faced many obstacles in His path – the same obstacles We all face on the road that we’re traveling. In the example of Jesus we find the courage to stay on the road we have been called to walk, and we find ourselves amazed at His love that would persevere all the way to the cross.

Distraction

February 21, 2016 by Mark Stuenzi Message 1 of 5

If you’ve ever been distracted by the voices of the crowd, you’re not alone. Sometimes, the voice of the crowd drowns out the still, small voice of God. The problem with following the voice of the crowd is not necessarily that we will do something wrong or immoral, it's that we may choose a comfortable detour from our God-given destination. Like Jesus, we must live for the audience of One.

Betrayal

February 28, 2016 by Mark Stuenzi Message 2 of 5

As Jesus gathered with his disciples in the Upper Room, he made the shocking announcement that one of them would betray him. This betrayal was so unexpected that even the closest followers of Jesus never detected the disloyalty of Judas. Amazingly, Jesus loved Judas in spite of his betrayal. If you’ve ever been betrayed by someone you love, you’re not alone. Like Jesus, we ought to offer grace, even to those who have turned on us.

Dread

March 6, 2016 by Jason Castelli Message 3 of 5

The account of Jesus in the Garden may be the clearest picture of both his full deity and his full humanity. He knew what was coming, but also felt such a deep sense of dread, which is reflected in his prayer. Maybe you’ve been filled with dread anticipating the future, too. Jesus offers us the perfect example of how we ought to respond in times like these by surrendering his will into God's hands.

Loneliness

March 13, 2016 by Mark Stuenzi Message 4 of 5

The closer Jesus got to the cross, the more alone he was. The ultimate moment of loneliness was when Jesus cried out, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” For a few moments in time, God no longer saw His Son, he saw our sin. Jesus went though complete separation from the Father so that we wouldn’t have to. His last words to his disciples were, “I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Love

March 20, 2016 by Dan White Message 5 of 5

At the end of the week, Jesus arrives at his destination: a cross. He continued on the road in the face of distraction, betrayal, dread and loneliness. What seemed to be a terrible tragedy from a human point of view, was actually a cosmic rescue mission. Jesus walked a road that he knew would lead to a cross. His sacrifice made it possible for us to walk a road that leads to everlasting life.
