weekly scripture reflection
Mary and Martha came to Jesus with their worry and grief. They experienced Jesus as the embodiment of God’s power for new life. As John tells the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from death, he wants us to glimpse how Jesus is God’s power for new life for us as well. Jesus is “the resurrection and the life.” While we hope for resurrection in the future, Jesus wants us to know that in the present, his resurrection power gives us light to find our way through uncertain and anxious times, as well as strength to meet life’s challenges.
When has Jesus given you light to find your way through anxious times?
How does Jesus give you hope and courage to deal with life’s current worries and challenges?
You're invited to make a sacred space in your day, praying here and now, with the help of scripture chosen every day and on-screen guidance.
