By Wednesday of Holy Week, it was clear what the outcome would be of the plans set in motion by the religious and political powers. Jesus’ reputation would be destroyed, he would be executed in the most demeaning way possible and he would be eliminated as a threat since he would quickly disappear from the consciousness of the crowds. But as important as this was, something more important was taking place. God was at work in-and-through all that was going on implementing a whole different set of plans. And they would be a shocker. The cross would not be the end of God’s work in Jesus, it actually would be the means by which Jesus’ saved the world. So have faith if you are struggling, grieving, hurting or failing. God is working in-and-through what is going on in your life in order. And although it probably won’t be what you expected, it will be just the amazing grace that you need.
