During WW2, two young Jews lived as close friends, (BFFs, we can call them), more than real brothers in a dingy Nazi concentration camp jammed with helpless-hopeless-exhausted-abused Jews. They shared everything, literally everything. One day, one of them felt weak and started to lose weight noticeably. His malnourished body deteriorated until he can no longer perform his daily assigned errands. He knew what that meant -- death in a gas chamber.

That night, his boorish Nazi guards advised him not to report to work the following day. He lay down on his worn out couch, scared and alone. He was unable to sleep even for a second. Morning broke and he was dragged into a line of queasy people, young and old, men and women. But on that lethargic line he saw his friend with a grim face yet with a smile of empathy. Before he could say a word his friend said, "I've walked with you through life; I'm going to walk with you to death."

The Lord Jesus did far more than that. He willingly walked through the agony of prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane so that we can wonderfully walk through the ecstasy of praise. He humbly followed the pathway of disgrace, the walkway of "via dolorosa", so that we can happily fly through the skyway of grace, the airway of "via soteria."

(From a sermon by Jofry Bustamante, Facing the Hard Realities of Life! 2/20/2011)
