We closed the 30 hour Famine this past Saturday with a discussion on the Passion of Christ. As we were talking the Lord brought to my mind something that I shared with the group and want to share with you now.

If someone were going to crucify me; nail me to a cross, they would have to drag me kicking and screaming or at least struggling as much as I was able.

In the movie, Jesus, with his last ounce of strength, pulled himself up and placed his own body on the wooden cross on which he was to be nailed.

"He (Jesus) was willing to die a shameful death on the cross because of the joy he knew would be his afterward. Now he is seated in the place of highest honor beside God's throne in heaven." Hebrews 12:2b
