Luke 23: 26-31
Simon from Cyrene.
Why is he in here?
The Roman soldiers made him carry Jesus' cross.
Even the Roman soldiers could see, sometimes,
you just can't do what you can't do.
There was no way that Jesus,
beaten and bloodied
was ever gonna get to the top of the hill
with that weight.
God knows that
we can't do what we can't do.
There is no amount of good deeds
we can do to take the weight of sin
from our shoulders
so that we can make it to heaven.
Simon came from Cyrene and carried a cross.
Jesus came from the father and carried our sin.
