Holy Week is fast approaching– leading up to our celebration of Resurrection Sunday, more commonly known as Easter, the zenith of the Christian calendar. During this week nearly 2,000 years ago, Christ secured glory for Himself, the Father, and most amazingly, us.

Pastor Wil Owens takes a close look at John 12: 20-36 and unveils for us how Christ’s agony on the cross “leads many sons to glory”. Click on the link below to listen. Enjoy and be encouraged!

“Following Jesus means we walk the same path He walked, the way of the cross. We take up our cross, deny ourselves, and follow Him. But it also means we will enter His glory with Him, for where He is, there will we be also. How do we live that out day to day, in the middle of the crisis, in the midst of the trouble? We keep looking to Jesus. Heb 12:2 – “looking to Jesus…who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame…” He endured the agony because He fixed His eyes on the certain, set, guaranteed glory! That’s how we endure as well.” –Wil Owens, Teaching Pastor
