Ponder this when you go to church tonight…

And no one breaks through the doors to haul you away.  

Ponder it, not because it is simply moving beyond words, but that the cost of following Christ has always been this high.  Remember that the Apostles considered it a great honor “to be worthy of suffering for the name.”  

Why ponder all of this on Good Friday – the day of our Lord’s suffering?  Because when we follow our Lord, we must always end at the cross.
