… but the righteous shall live by his faith.
My inbox is full with inspirational writings devoted to the last days of Passion week. Each one, in its own way, takes apart the story of the cross and reminds me of the great love Christ has for me.
But I wonder…would I have stuck around or fled like the other disciples? What did the washing of my feet, along with those of Judas, mean? That I am not more righteous than he is, I just hide it better? Would my heart be broken as I stood at the base of the cross, along with Mary, begging God for answers? Would I escape to my house to mourn in darkness for the rest of the weekend? Or would I have the faith to believe all that Jesus told me and continues to reveal each day, looking forward to the resurrection?
Don’t give up. Easter is coming.
