Courage

When the days drew near for him to be taken up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem. ~Luke 9:51 (CEB)

“Biblical spirituality inspires acts of courage born of commitment to God. Such courage does not call persons to do the impossible but faithfully and selflessly to do what they can when they could have chosen otherwise. Lent recalls the courage of Jesus who ‘set his face to go to Jerusalem’ (Luke 9:51), in of understanding what awaited him there. Jesus’ example invokes courage today as you and I translate words of commitment to God into freely chosen actions that place others above self- and God above all, for trust of God opens the door to courage.” ~From Neglected Voices by John Indermark

Almighty God, through the power of your Holy Spirit you enable me to do and be more than I can think or imagine. Come now, dwell within me and give me strength to do your work and will. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
