The mission and ministry of Jesus is universal. Jesus comes from God for everyone. It is often surprising to see that those least familiar with God respond first and most fully when they encounter Jesus.

The surprises of God’s plan ought to make me nervous. What might I miss if I am more intent on what I want than what God might have in mind?

Dear Jesus, may Your Spirit open my mind and heart today. May my posture be a receptive one. The Good News that you bring is that God’s love is for everyone.
