“Down the Via Dolorosa” was a message preached to a local body in Fort Smith Arkansas that examines some aspects of Christ as He traveled toward Golgotha. The picture is far from pretty but the end of His road was met up with victory not only for Him but also Christians from that time forward. The picture of Christ on a difficult path is a type of the Christian walk. There will be no easy walk but this is not a surety of failure. In fact, the hard walk is a sign of a victorious end. So, as Christ traveled the way of sorrows so must the Christian take up his cross. This said, there is but one thing to keep in mind. While the road may seem rough, and it is, perseverance guarantees victory!
