Unswervingly resolute — from the Calvin Institute for Christian Worship / Coop’s Column by Dale Cooper


Description of column:

This week we join Jesus and his disciples at a spot just outside the city of Jericho. They’ve made their way southward from the Mount of Transfiguration a week or so earlier and are now at a place a few miles west of the city where two important roads intersect. One road leads west toward Jerusalem and the other north toward Galilee. That intersection, and the choice of which road to take, became something of a crossroads’ moment for Jesus.


Prayer [DSC’s prayer for sure]

“O Lord, have mercy on me, a sinner.
Establish my heart in your will.
Grant me true repentance for my sins;….
To You, my God….be praise and glory forever
For all the benefits you have given me,
And for all Your mercies to me, a sinner,
For your name’s sake.
