If it was simply a matter of human beings choosing to follow God and do the right thing, the ministry of Jesus would have died in Gethsemane. This was:
1. Divine Initiative – This is God’s plan. It’s not a reaction. God chose the cross.
2. Divine Intervention – God laid the sin of the world on Jesus. God raised Jesus from the dead. The plan didn’t look like success. The disciples were scattered. Jesus felt alone. WHAT NEEDED TO HAPPEN…ONLY GOD COULD DO.
3. Divine Impartation – This crazy, mixed up bunch of followers who ran and hid in fear CHANGED THE WORLD. BECAUSE GOD CAME TO LIVE IN THEM.
