It is so true that history repeats itself. In my mind’s eye, I can look and see the crowds surrounding Jesus. So many people trying to lean into Him, to push Him into the direction of how they think society and events before them should unfold.
What so many were really blind to in that generation and ours is that Jesus Christ was heading to the cross. It was on the cross that the redemptive power of God—the true power of God—was going to be made manifest. Paul said in 1 Corinthians chapter 1, verse 18, “The preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness, and unto us which are saved, it is the power of God.” You and I need to go into the prayer closet again. We need to lay hold of the victory that is ours through the cross of Jesus Christ. And laying hold of that victory, God will use our lives to make a difference in this society.
It is time to pray.
