Scripture of the Day
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and him crucified. (
1 Corinthians 2:2
I can get lost in the particulars. I can get overexcited by nuance and complexity. But at the end of the day and at the beginning of the next, I come back to Jesus — the one who calls, teaches, counsels, compels, and encourages; the one who died alone that I might live among many.
Jesus, thank you for your sacrifice — not only your death but your life also. And for your resurrection that proves death’s impotence and life’s permanence. I want to live with the same conviction and passion and willingness to let go so that others may hold on. Amen.
