St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

January 30

"They drove Jesus out of town." (Luke 4:29)

We love heroes because we can admire and try to emulate them. But Jesus isn't an ordinary hero. In the incident in Luke 4 the crowd turn against Jesus and chase him out of town. They hoped for a hero and instead got a carpenter's son. Jesus saves the world not by the usual super-hero route, but by his death on the Cross. The Salvation he offers is the forgiveness of sins and the offer of eternal life.

Lord, may we hear and act on your words even when they seem too challenging or uncomfortable for us to hear. Amen.
