While they were all amazed at his every deed,
Jesus said to his disciples,
"Pay attention to what I am telling you.
The Son of Man is to be handed over to men."
But they did not understand this saying;
its meaning was hidden from them
so that they should not understand it,
and they were afraid to ask him about this saying.
~Luke 9: 43b-45
Lord, I am always amazed at the deeds that You do, through the church, through others, and even through myself, but help me to remember that while signs and wonders show forth Your Glory, the true Glory is in the Cross. There will always be the cross.
Help me to pay attention to what you are telling me.
I am excited by the signs and wonders. Help me also to remember that they always point to the cross, and that through the Cross is salvation.
I love you, Jesus.
