Wherever he goes, Jesus extends God’s mercy, power, forgiveness, and healing, and the most ordinary things are transformed—like water into wine. He opens the eyes of people who are blind, literally and figuratively, and releases people from whatever holds them captive. He transforms the lives of all he encounters, and he continues to do so.
—Rebecca Bruff, Loving the World with God: Fourth Day Living (Upper Room Books, 2014)

For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.
—Mark 10:45 (NRSV)
