The Hope

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
 
May Christ the King bless each of you!
 
In the book “There is No Cheap Grace,” Sam H. Moffett told this story.
The story is told of a dear old saint, incurably ill, who was visited by a younger friend. “You are suffering very much, I am afraid,” said the younger woman, trying to be helpful.
“Yes,” said the older woman, “but look.” She held out her hands. “There are no nails there. He had the nails; I have the hope.” she pointed to her head. “There are no thorns there. He had the thorns; I have the hope.”
 
Christ is Our King! But not a king of military might. Christ is the King who stoops down and looks eye to eye at every human suffering. Jesus is the King who stays with us in all times good and bad and embraces us into eternal truth.
 
See Luke 23:33-43, Jeremiah 23:1-6, or Colossians 1:11-20 for further reflection.
 
Still in One Peace,
 
Pastor David J. Jensen
