By Gloria Jean Woodard  
First Missionary Baptist Church
After the Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem, the way was already laid out for Jesus. These things must happen for Him. He knew His assignment and the Will of the Father. He didn’t do anything contrary to the Will of the Spirit. And you say Why? Well it was for you and I; for the sinner that had no Savior; for the ones that thought they were doing right but was in error. Jesus is our Way, our Truth, and our Life! There is no other way to get to the Father! There is no other way to hear the Truth but through the Word of God! There is no other way to Life, but through His life. He was the only sinless Lamb of God! And the CROSS was the only horrible way the Romans used for death. He was determined to show His Love toward a people that was determined to kill Him. The CROSS was the only Way declared, for you to see and for you to believe. The CROSS was ordained by God: 


                                            1. Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, 
                                            2. Jesus is betrayed by Judas and arrested, 
                                            3. Jesus is condemned by the Sanhedrin, 
                                            4. Jesus is denied by Peter, 
                                            5. Jesus is judged by Pilate, 
                                            6. Jesus is scourged and crowned with thorns, 
                                            7. Jesus takes up His cross, 
                                            8. Jesus is helped by Simon of Cyrene to carry His cross, 
                                            9. Jesus meets the Daughters of Jerusalem weeping, 
                                            10. Jesus is crucified, 
                                            11. Jesus promises His kingdom to the repentant thief, 
                                            12. Jesus entrusts Mary and John to each other, 
                                            13. Jesus dies on the cross, 
                                            14. Jesus is laid in the tomb.


Jesus suffered so much for us that He needed help in carrying the cross to its destination. I believe Simon of Cyrene was allowed to help Jesus carry that cross, so we could understand and see what it really felt like when it’s our time to bear a burden. Jesus was not in it alone. We would be an extension of Him, and we will have to help bear one another’s burden. Bearing another’s burden means praying, checking on, talking too, and delivering them up to Jesus’ Will. It’s a lonely and devastating time in a person’s life when they go through situations with no help. The Way of the Cross is to be led by the Spirit and do as the Spirit leads because you can’t take a person’s place while they’re going through their difficulty. You can't make their decisions No friend, no loved one, no family member can take their place. That tells us that we will have to endure our situation until His power removes it; until we come to an understanding of the process of the lesson, or the wrongdoing. No! Jesus was the only One to take our place! And yes, He was the only One who could take His place! The way of the CROSS causes us to make decisions that will always lead to Him! The transition extends from a hell bound life to a heaven bound life. Jesus showed us that "He" alone had to be nailed to that cross; "He" alone was the only One qualified to endure that CROSS.

God Bless!
