A certain man from Cyrene, Simon, the father of Alexander and Rufus, was passing by on his way in from the country, and they forced him to carry the cross.
Was Simon of Cyrene willing to help Jesus carry the cross?
Jesus was whipped and injured, unable to carry the heavy cross. Simon of Cyrene just passed there, and the soldiers forced him to help Jesus carry the cross. This is a wonderful arrangement of God. Simon was just passing by but was forced to help. He should have felt very helpless, but later he and his family believed in Jesus and came to know God. He was actually very lucky.
Let us watch the story of “Jesus on trial”~

When the teacher asks for help at school, do you feel that you are so unlucky to be called by the teacher? But you are actually the little angel of the teacher, and God wants to bless you even more, so that you can have the opportunity to learn more things and have more abilities.
Dear Lord Jesus Christ, every time I feel forced to do something again, please change my feeling so that I don’t feel that it is painful to be asked, but I can have a willing heart and try my best to complete it . In the holy name of the Lord Jesus Christ, amen!
