"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Matthew 4:8-11
Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to him, “All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.”Every place that the Devil led Jesus was higher and higher. A high temple, and a high mountain are emblematic of the temptation to power that he was offering Christ. "I will give you all the nations if you just bow down and worship me."

There is possibly no greater temptation in our political and ecclesial life than the one of power and control. It is much harder to love people than to control them. We have the same issues in our homes and in our schools. Join us as we look at the beauty and humility of Jesus as we grow in his suffering and joy.
