Via Crucis (3)

Station 3: Jesus Falls the First Time The cross…. But with each taxing step, the frailty of Jesus’ pure humanity accentuates the frailty of our tainted humanity.

Station 3: Jesus Falls the First Time

The cross. Pilate’s instrument of death being transformed into God’s instrument of life. A process of pain; a journey of anguish. So staggering, it drops Jesus to his knees. We wince at a stumbling Messiah. We cringe at frail humanity. But with each taxing step, his frailty accentuates our own. Jesus stumbles not under his own burden, but ours. Our fall causes him to fall. Such is the calamity of our sin.
