On the Road: The Last Mile

Mike Butler

This week Pastor Butler continues with the “On the Road” series focusing on the ways Jesus handled many of life’s challenges on the road to the cross. This week Pastor Butler reflects on Jesus’ willingness to walk “The Last Mile”, so that we could speak of what it means to have peace in our lives both now and ultimately forever. Join us at 9:00 and 10:30 on Sunday mornings and for more information about CrossPointe please visit www.crosspointe.tv .

Luke 9:51, NIV 2011 “As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem.”

Luke 19:28-44, NIV 2011 28 After Jesus had said this, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. 29 As he approached Bethphage and Bethany at the hill called the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples, saying to them, 30 “Go to the village ahead of you, and as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. 31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ say, ‘The Lord needs it.’ ” 32 Those who were sent ahead went and found it just as he had told them. 33 As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, “Why are you untying the colt?” 34 They replied, “The Lord needs it.” 35 They brought it to Jesus, threw their cloaks on the colt and put Jesus on it. 36 As he went along, people spread their cloaks on the road. 37 When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives,the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen: 38 “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!”  “Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” 39 Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!” 40 “I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” 41 As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it 42 and said, “If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes. 43 The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side. 44 They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God’s coming to you.”

Jesus knew that the last mile would be the most important.

Jesus walked the last mile to change our lives and minds.

  • Jesus isn’t an example for us, he is the example for us.

  • Peace won’t come in our world until we settle the wars in our hearts.

Jesus set out on the last mile to show us how to do it.

Psalm 31:9-16, NIV 2011 9 Be merciful to me, Lord, for I am in distress;

my eyes grow weak with sorrow, my soul and body with grief. 10 My life is consumed by anguish and my years by groaning; my strength fails because of my affliction,  and my bones grow weak. 11 Because of all my enemies, I am the utter contempt of my neighbors and an object of dread to my closest friends— those who see me on the street flee from me. 12 I am forgotten as though I were dead; I have become like broken pottery. 13 For I hear many whispering, “Terror on every side!” They conspire against me and plot to take my life. 14 But I trust in you, Lord; I say, “You are my God.” 15 My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me. 16 Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love.
