This week, we’ve been reading about Jesus being our king and being an extraordinary one at that. We have learned about a life of service and being humble in our actions.
As I reflect on our readings this week, I see this theme: life in Jesus. What is our life like when we believe and follow Jesus? It is a life that is not always easy, but one that if filled with the love of God. In life, Jesus walks with us, holds our hand, and cares for us. Isn’t that good news?
