-Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus carry His cross

Luke 23:26 tells us, “as they led him away, they seized one Simon of Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, and laid on him the cross, to carry it behind Jesus.” Simon of Cyrene might be considered a victim of circumstance. He had most likely come to Jerusalem for the Passover festivities and probably knew little about the proceedings at hand. Even Jesus allowed people to assist Him in picking up His cross…

Take some time and read what the Lord is doing in other people’s lives. As you are moved, write down your own story and help someone else after you “carry their cross.”
