As we press into the daily grind of 2019, set aside time to join me in checking / resetting our compass by prayerfully considering: Who is this Jesus I / we follow? Is Jesus my / our first love — receiving primary allegiance? Do I / we “trust and obey” — placing hope (short / long term) in Jesus? How do I / we share the love of Jesus with others in our messy context?
[Jesus] would have had over 99% of his DNA in common with both Mary and Joseph — and also you and me and everyone you know.
Who was Jesus? Indeed, who is Jesus?
