the final day : the temple mount, western wall, and via dolorosa




I feel like I don’t have the words to really describe this day. The temple mount where God chose to place His Holy Presence for the Israelites in the past; the Western Wall where His chosen people have cried out to Him for so many years; the Via Dolorosa that remembers the suffering of the Messiah at the hands of the Jews… it just hit me again and again how important it is to remember God’s story and to proclaim it to the world.

The most impactful moment of this day was also the most unlikely. Our group clustered into an upper floor of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, crammed with hundreds of other tourists who wanted to see the same artwork and touch the same patch of Calvary’s bedrock. Pastor Randy only said one thing up there before we hurried down to make way for more tourists, and it was this: “Somewhere within twenty-five feet of where you’re standing, God saved the world.”

Wrap your mind around that one.
