It wasn’t long before dark clouds began to gather around Jesus’ ministry. Even as He proclaimed the kingdom of God and healed the sick, opposition arose from the religious leaders. A storm was descending that would lead to the cross. But Jesus did not flinch. He completed His God-given mission with sobriety, fidelity, and expectancy, paving the way for everyone who would follow Him by faith. No matter how great our storm, Jesus is greater and will deliver us in the end.
