When reading our Bibles, sometimes we get so stuck on an event’s details that we overlook its message. After looking at one of the more “stranger” events in Jesus’ life, we’ll consider things that Jesus wants us to see concerning our discipleship.
Simon of Cyrene is the story of a man who was not looking for a cross, but the cross of Jesus found him. Today, there are those who are intentionally looking for the cross, while there are others who find the cross accidentally.
The Bible is filled with examples of those who overcame failure to become success stories in the Lord’s work. They were given a second chance. Not only have we been given second chances, we must also offer them to others.
