Jesus was clear on his cause. His purpose was not nebulous, his actions and reactions reflected his commitment to fulfilling his mission. Here are 3 lessons to learn:
1. When the cause is clear, your commitment level increases. 15:20 “When they were finally tired of mocking him, they took off the purple robe and put his own clothes on him again. Then they led him away to be crucified.” Jesus was committed to his mission to the point that he was willing to die for it. He did not always like it, but he never quit on it. Nebulous causes bring subpar effort. Ask yourself- Is what I’m doing worth dying for?
3. When the cause is clear, the leader may die, but the cause endures. 15:39 “When the Roman officer who stood facing him saw how he had died, he exclaimed, “This man truly was the Son of God!” Jesus’ cause did not die with him; it endured, expanded and emerged even stronger after his death. Let us live our lives for a greater cause.
Conclusion- I want to live a life that matters. For a cause that is clear and greater than myself.
