THE WAY TO THE CROSS

by | Mar 21, 2021 | Sermon

TEXT: HEBREWS 12:1

INTRODUCTION
Jesus came into the world with the mandate of saving sinners. A man who has a destination has a meaning in his life. Destination begat determination. God does not reward beginners but those who end well. Every child of God in this Christian journey should have an end in view.

The way to destruction is sometimes appealing but the end thereof is destruction. In between the beginning and the end comes a plan. A well-structured plan leads one to a happy ending. If you do not want a plan, you miss out on the destination. Show me a man who die untimely, then I will show you a man without a plan. God has predestined us to doing some things. Eph. 1:11

Destination is where you are going in life. Plan is how to you will get there. The “how” is not always easy but if you can endure and have focus, the “where” will be achieved in no time. The end of a thing is better than the beginning thereof. Eccl. 7:8.

Every destination has distractions in the process. Jesus was tempted with the view of distracting Him from achieving His purpose, but He overcame with the word of God. Joseph was also distracted in the process but win more at the end. The more you yield to distraction, the more you sink in the place of destiny. Beginners are not rewarded. Matt 24:13. God does not remove mountains but strengthen to mount it. There cannot be a crown without a cross.

A CASE STUDY OF JESUS
1. He was betrayed. Betrayal was part of the plan.
2. He was defamed. Matt. 12:24.
3. He was put to shame and nailed with Criminals.

CONCLUSION
God only shows the destination but not the process. The way to the Cross is not always easy and rosy. Nothing cut-short one’s purpose in life than sin. The longest route to destiny is short-cut. Sin is short-cut. Never take a short-cut.
