Not What You'd Expect

He wasn't the Messiah they expected. He wasn't the Messiah they wanted. So in the end, they ordered his death. 

There are those who still wish him dead, as well as all he taught and modeled. That is why it is more important than ever that we live out what Jesus taught us, with humility and love.  

"Think of yourselves the way Christ Jesus thought of himself. He had equal status with God but didn’t think so much of himself that he had to cling to the advantages of that status no matter what. Not at all. When the time came, he set aside the privileges of deity and took on the status of a slave, became human! Having become human, he stayed human. It was an incredibly humbling process. He didn’t claim special privileges. Instead, he lived a selfless, obedient life and then died a selfless, obedient death—and the worst kind of death at that—a crucifixion." [The Message]

He went against the ways of this world. And he died, that we might truly live.
