Tonight I’m talking through a passage that displays how the Lord Jesus surrounded himself with people he cared for, right before he encountered the cross. It is interesting to me that we tend to face trials of many kinds by secluding ourselves completely. However, hours before Jesus hung on the cross for our sins, he surrounded himself with people who cared for him. This displays how highly Jesus regarded the gathering of believers as increasingly important as he approached the cross.
We must begin to develop a greater passion for the gathering of believers than we previously have had. We must become more and more interested in the lives of the people around us.
