victims

Sunday October 18th, Isaiah 53: 4 Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflictedHandel Messiah comes to the point of near perfection in presenting this text. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5LriRAk5to) It real life, the drama continues.  In spite of all our attempts to save ourselves as the expense of others, in the end, it is Christ, often looked down on, and trodden upon in the form of the poor huddled masses, that saves us. After all our attempts, after all our destruction of one another for the sake of our own advancement, it is Christ, and Christ alone who saves us.  What we have rejected and replaced with all our anxiety is the joy of the journey.  Look to the down trodden, especially the ones you are trotting upon, for they are the presence of Christ for your journey with Jesus today.  Walking with Christ is walking with the victims of yesterday’s journey with an eye towards tomorrow’s community.
