Was Jesus Forced to Die?

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.”

John 10:11

Ponder This

Did you know that there has only been one person who ever chose to die? Only one.

No, you say, suicide pilots choose to die. People who die by their own hand choose to die. People who sacrifice themselves for others choose to die.

No one has ever chosen to die but Jesus, because He was the only one who didn’t have to die. Some people may just choose to die a little sooner, but nobody who did not have to die has chosen to die except One.

Nails did not hold Jesus Christ to the tree. The silver cords of love and the golden bonds of redemption held Him there.
