I want to be able to live a godly life for my children that I will not have to say to them, “don’t do what I did” but I want to be able to say to them, “live how I lived.” I want them to be able to imitate me.
Do you know the father and son relationship between Simon and Rufus? Do you know these 2 Biblical names?
Here is something cool for us today….
In Romans 16, most historians and commentators believe that Rufus was the son of a cross carrier. And not just “A” cross carrier but “THE” cross carrier.
ROMANS 16:13 Greet Rufus, a choice man in the Lord, also his mother and mine
Rufus is the son of Simon of Cyrene, the man who was called out of the crowd to carry the cross of Jesus.
