Dear Self: In all my comings and goings today, let me remember that I am a citizen of The Kingdom of Heaven and a High Ambassador of our Lord to this world. Govern myself accordingly.

“We had hoped he was the Messiah who had come to rescue Israel.” ……
“Wasn’t it clearly predicted that the Messiah would have to suffer all these things before entering his glory?”……. Then Jesus took them through the writings of Moses and all the prophets, explaining from all the Scriptures the things concerning himself………
