My Jesus, the world still has You on trial. It keeps asking who You are and why You make the demands You make.
It asks over and over the question, If You are God’s Son, why do You permit the world to be in the state it is in?
Why are You so silent?
Though the arrogance of the world angers me, I must admit that silently, in the depths of my soul, I too have these questions.
Your humility frustrates me and makes me uncomfortable.
Your strength before Pilate as You drank deeply from the power of the Father, gives me the answer to my question – The Father’s Will.
The Father permits many sufferings in my life but it is all for my good.
