John 12.20-36

This Tuesday we are having our Holy Tuesday service. This will be on Tuesday, April 19th at 7pm. The scripture that we will be focusing on is John 12.20-36. In this text Jesus says: "Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world will be driven out. And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself" (verses 31-32). During this time, where we are journeying with Jesus to Golgotha, we are reminded that this long road to Calvary is one that ends with the death of our Lord. But in that death the ruler of this world is driven out, the people of this world are drawn to the cross, and the judgment of this world is executed. From the cross, Jesus invites all to his bleeding side. For it is by his wounds that we are healed. We proclaim Christ crucified ---- which is the power of God for salvation.
