Just Jesus - March 5, 2020

Is Peter speaking to us when he urges, “Friends, this world is not your home, so don’t make yourselves cozy in it” (1 Peter 2:11)?

We know our Father’s name, and he has claimed us, but he has yet to come for us.  So here we are.  Caught between what is and what will be. No longer orphans but not yet home.  What do we do in the meantime?  Indeed, it can be just that—a mean time.  Time made mean with disease, deceit, death, and debt.  How do we live in the meantime?  How do we keep our hearts headed home?

“Let us look only to Jesus, the One who began our faith and who makes it perfect” (Hebrews 12:2).  Look to Jesus.  Ponder his life.  Consider his ways.  Meditate on his words.  Jesus….just Jesus.
