Calvary Coming?

Calvary Coming?

Two criminals were led out to be put to death with Jesus.When the soldiers came to the place called “The Skull,” they nailed Jesus to a cross. They also nailed the two criminals to crosses, one on each side of Jesus.Jesus said, “Father, forgive these people! They don't know what they're doing.”While the crowd stood there watching Jesus, the soldiers gambled for his clothes. The leaders insulted him by saying, “He saved others. Now he should save himself, if he really is God's chosen Messiah!”
Luke 23:32-35

Apparently the headline writer at Fox News got confused about the difference between "Cavalry" and "Calvary." 

The headline read, "CALVARY COMING? Pentagon wants to send 400 more US troops to Iraq." 
Of course Calvary is the place where Jesus died. It means "the skull." Cavalry is part of a military force composed of troops that serve on horseback.

Most of the people in this world today are confused about "Calvary." They don't know who Jesus is and they certainly don't know what He did on the "Cross of Calvary."

In the United States our political leaders are being criticized again for wanting to vote on a bill that they have not read! How can they make a responsible decision when they don't know what the bill says? But lots of people, and maybe even you have decided to vote "no" on Jesus without ever knowing who He really is and why He came to this world. 

You may be confused about many things in this world, but do not be confused about Jesus! Find out who He is and read about why He came in the Bible! 

"Lord Jesus, I want to know who You are and why You came. But most of all Lord help me to know You and to know what You did on Calvary! May You be praised forever! Amen."
