Make no mistake: "all roads, all paths, all ways DO NOT (I emphasize again: "DO NOT") lead to God's end.
I do not know how He does it, but He sure does captivate me. He continues to inspire and invigorate me. His impressiveness never declines or stays stagnant. It keeps progressing, never having an end.
Jesus was well acquainted with grief and sorrow. He knew what it meant to be despised, oppressed and rejected; many threw His precious gifts in His face. He understood what it meant to be betrayed, brutally beaten, scorned and mocked. Jesus knew how it felt to be undermined and underestimated...The real question is whether or not we are capable of accepting the truth of what God has said while we go through brutal suffering and unimaginable pain.
