Day 14: ELIJAH AND JESUS ARE ON THE SAME JOURNEY
Jesus said, “They did not recognize him [Elijah] but did to him whatever they pleased. So also will the Son of Man suffer at their hands.”
“Jesus is coming.” “Jesus will be born.” “Jesus is our king and prince of peace.” These statements are perfectly correct. What we do not connect right away or try to avoid is “Jesus will be rejected, suffer and die” as well. This is the hardcore truth about Jesus. Like they treated Elijah, they will treat the same thing with the Son of Man.
Will you accept your destiny as Jesus accepted his? Are you content and courageous to be born and live out God’s will as Jesus did regardless of hardship and difficulties?
Let us pray today that each one of us truly connects with God in all situations. Let us be willing to allow God to be our destiny and our salvation. Let us set our goal in heaven by living out every moment of our lives with trust and joy. Let us together say, “It is a privilege and blessing to be here with my family, friends and others.” Jesus is on the same journey with us, like he did with Elijah and two thieves on Calvary.
Reflection question: Are you aware of Jesus is journeying with you every day?
