Whom are you looking for? This is a question that is answered in many different ways of Jesus in the scripture and still is. Is he a teacher, a political revolutionary, a prophet, etc. How we answer the question makes a remarkable difference to our journey. For Judas he was a failed leader. For Mary he was Lord. Lord assumes all of the titles with an important difference. If he is a teacher, we can pick and choose what to listen to out of his mouth, but dependence is not there. Lord assumes utter dependence and leads to new life. So, who is Jesus for you today as we end our first week.
Not only Lord, but Lord in a different way. A second question to ponder for today is “What ways does this different type of Lordship make a difference in how I live my life?”
