Try to Understand

Luke 22:7-23:25, Psalms 47, 49


The disciples said, “See, Lord, here are two swords.”

“That’s enough!” he replied. Luke 22:38


No one understood – not the disciples, not Herod, not the crowd. Jesus spoke of the cross to the disciples on the night of his arrest and they came up with two swords to protect him (used one at the garden, but Jesus healed the man they wounded). Jesus’ response of “that’s enough,” is not an assessment of their weaponry but a statement of frustration that their conversation was going nowhere. The question remains – do we understand the cross? Do I fall on my knees when I think of what Jesus sacrificed for me or am I turning to him praying my team will win or that he can help me to “easily” lose 10 pounds? I pray that I never take for granted the price Jesus paid that I might live. Thank you Jesus!
