Not My Will
From Series: "Passion: The Way of Suffering"
“Passion” is defined as a strong and barely controllable emotion. There’s also a second definition of passion that none of us would choose on our own – the suffering and death of Jesus – thanks, but no thanks! Yet every spring, Jesus-followers throughout the globe set aside time and attention to walk through the season of Lent, replicating Jesus’s sacrifice and withdrawal into the desert for 40 days. What is it about walking with the suffering Jesus that somehow gifts us with clarity and strength for our own lives? We take a deep dive into the Gospel of Luke chapters 22-23, finding fresh faith and a passion we never knew existed.
