Matthew 27:32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.
Mark 15:21 And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross.
Luk 23:26 And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus.
Simon of Cyrene was going out, we really don’t know where he was going. He might would have come out to see Jesus. But the soldiers compelled him to carry the cross . We really don’t know how far he carried the cross of Jesus Christ. But the truth is he was the most blessed person on earth in my opinion. Because the sin of whole world was upon on the cross, which Jesus Christ was carrying.
Simon was compelled to carry this cross. There were 12 disciples but they all ran away.
Isa 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
The curse, iniquities, transgression, sickness, bondage, all together our sin was upon Jesus Christ , He was carrying these as cross on his shoulder.
Which Simon of Cyrene carried to little distance. He carried only little distance because after that the verse we read soon Jesus Christ was crucified.
Today Jesus Christ is asking everyone one of us will you carry My cross.??
Everybody of us have trials, tribulation, sickness, difficulties which we need to carry daily and overcome it. Only then we can inherit the throne and reign with Jesus. Without cross there is no throne. Jesus Christ successfully overcame in this test and is on the right hand side of Lord the God. Likewise we need to overcome in our trial to be seated at right side of Jesus Christ.
Rev 3:21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
