During the last hours of his life, Jesus climbed a hill called Golgotha. It was the place where common criminals were executed. The lamb of God was forced to carry his own cross up his final hill. Jesus knows what an overwhelming incline feels like. He pressed on and became our model of faith that endures...even in the most trying of times. Jesus' uphill victory led to our salvation and hope. As we watch Jesus in the passion narratives we see the best hill-climber ever. We discover practices that can be engrafted into our lives as a source of spiritual fuel to help us when we face the steep inclines of life. We all love those seasons when things go well, the wind is at our back, and sailing is smooth. But, as we follow Jesus we know there will be challenging times. In these up-hill moments we meet him in fresh ways and discover what it means to be his follower.
