Take courage; do not lose heart

Morning: Psalms 20, 21:1-14; Exodus 17:1-16; I Peter 4:7-19

A better world feels like a faint hope when its most powerful leaders are today engaged in a dangerous standoff that threatens our peace.  Jesus tells his disciples that they will face pain and persecution as they pursue his Way … like the pain of a woman in labour; but she will soon know great joy.  The Christian hope is the joy of a renewed cosmos.  When Jesus says he overcomes the world, he means the power of love defeats the power of death.  This is the Christian hope, and the mission of humankind.  So we do not lose heart.
