Reminders of the brevity of life are all around us. Blink once and yesterday is gone; blink twice and tomorrow is here before you know it. Such reality lends emphasis to today. Maybe that’s part of what Jesus was conveying in his very first sermon, a one sentence one at that: “Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” What scripture? The one from Isaiah describing the work Jesus came to do, the work of announcing good news, bringing release and recovery and freedom, and proclaiming God’s favor for Gods’ people, which never forget, is all people.
Of course, that’s the very same work that you and I are to continue to fulfill as sisters and brothers of Christ today. Where do you see Christ at work in your life, today?
Remember the encouragement of the Psalmist, “This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
Blessings, Pastor Mark
