Who Are We to Question?

“By what authority are you doing these things?” they asked Mark 11:28

Today is Ash Wednesday, a day to make us aware of our guilt and Jesus’ love. The religious leaders of Jesus’ time were in no position to demand that Jesus explain himself, neither are we. Before Jesus our best move is to fall to our knees in humility and gratitude. Jesus could demand our lives at any time, but he chose to sacrifice his own. This great act of love was for you and me. It is a privilege to wear the sign of the cross marked in ashes today. It is one small way to honor him who gave us life. Jesus, forgive me for the times I think you need to answer to me. I lay my life down before you. AMEN.
