The Work of Calvary
“And, behold, there talked with Him two men, which were Moses and Elias: Who appeared in glory, and spake of His decease which He should accomplish at Jerusalem” (Luke 9:30-31).
“And, behold, two of them … talked together of all these things which had happened … And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus Himself drew near, and went with them. Then He said unto them … Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into His glory? (Luke 24:13-15, 25-26).
Both before and after He went to the cross, the Lord Jesus discussed the work of Calvary. First of all, in anticipation, and secondly, as an accomplished work. How good for us today to have that work before our hearts and to speak of it together as we interact and fellowship with other believers.
In both cases cited above, we find the glory is referred to as well. How good it is to be able to worship and glorify Christ today, and then to look forward to the time when we will “appear with Him in glory” (Colossians 3:4).
