Jesus maintains his poise.
From the momentous mountain top marvelling, through the cheeky August afternoon nap, and into the super stressful September school run, He is poised with grace, ready to love and to serve.
Wonderful news in at least two ways for us disciple:
His presence is not determined by our present circumstances. His most emphatic promises were around his ongoing accompaniment of us. Whether you’re making inspired utterances, or throwing a temper tantrum, he is on hand and available to you.
And, believe it or not, he is carefully turning you into the kind of person that also maintains their poise in all circumstances, alert to reach out in love and lay down your life for those around you.
Thank you Jesus, for being with us today, and for continuing to transform us into your likeness.
