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