God Has Come to Help His People
Jesus saw the widow of Nain and felt the magnitude of her loss. She had no husband to protect her and now no son to provide for her. Compassion begins with having eyes to see individuals and their unique circumstances. If we desire to be like Jesus, we must slow down, look around, and be willing to enter into the lives of others
Why Have You Done This to Us?
The life we imagine with Christ is often very different from the reality of our lives lived with Christ. Have you ever journeyed with Jesus from “I am the Lord’s servant” and “My spirit rejoices in God my Savior” to “Why?” That’s OK. Ask the honest questions. Listen for the answers. Jesus is truth. Continue to walk with him. Jesus is present. Jesus will not leave you. He will continue to journey with you.
Anna spoke about the child Jesus. We have been called to do the same. Speak about Jesus. I’m afraid we often over complicate this commission.
My Spirit Rejoices in God My Savior
At times, when Jesus enters our life, we find ourselves shaken, uncertain of the implications of His presence in and purpose for us. This is not, in most instances, the best time to be alone. We are created for community. In times of uncertainty and confusion, we benefit from godly counsel and trusted friends.
