Submission, Death, and Glory
God is with us in our suffering (Isaiah 50:4-9a) as we cry out to him and trust in his unfailing love (Psalm 31:9-16). We praise God for opening the gates of righteousness through the suffering and death of Jesus (Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29). He humbled himself (Philippians 2:5-11) and demonstrated submission to God's will in the midst of ultimate suffering (Matthew 21:1-11). He was crucified so that we might have eternal life and forgiveness of sins (Matthew 26:14 - 27:66).
