When some Greeks come asking to “see Jesus,” the Lord takes it as the sign that his time to die and rise has come. His mission all along has not been to draw just a few; not just those in need; not just his own people or family. Instead, with the arrival of these outsiders seeking to follow him, Jesus says his purpose is to “draw all people to himself.” He will do that by dying and rising; by being lifted up on the cross. The pull of gravity may keep planets in orbit, but the power of love to draw us in is even stronger. The love of the cross drags us to Jesus. But beware, that love is not just for some – it is for everyone.
