Selfless Attitude

I’ve been thinking about Jesus’ attitude leading up to his crucifixion.  He had so many opportunities to let the situation get the best of him.  But he didn’t.  He always had the right attitude.

He knew who he was
He knew whose he was
He knew what he was made to do
His purpose was set in stone

He was God
Yet he was man
He was tempted
Just as we are
Yet he never gave in
Never

He could have resisted
He could have fought it
He could have turned his back and walked away

But he didn’t

Instead, he suffered for us
He died for us
He rose from the dead for us
He ascended to heaven for us

He had the right attitude at all times
He didn’t let circumstances get the best of him

When he was betrayed by Judas’ kiss
When he was arrested in the garden
When he was disowned by Peter
When he was questioned by Pontius Pilate
When he was whipped
When he was ridiculed

When the crown of thorns sank into his skull
When the first nail pierced his skin
When the knife was plunged into his side
When they gave him the bitter drink

He knew who he was
He knew whose he was
He knew what he was made to do
His purpose was set in stone

He was the victor
He rose from the dead
He walked out of the sealed tomb
He spoke to Mary Magdalene
He appeared before the disciples
He shared truth with two on the road to Emmaeus
He ascended to heaven
He sits at the right hand of God the Father
He waits for us
He conquered
