Luke says that Jesus “set his face” toward Jerusalem. But he was more than merely resolute or determined. He seems eager – urgent – driven to get to his goal. Setting aside his usual ministry pattern, Jesus goes quickly from village to village on the way to his crucifixion. “For the joy set before him…” (Hebrews 12) If we follow Jesus, we too will plow straight ahead toward the goal, to reach the world with the gospel.
- Luke 9:51 - 10:12
