1. Jesus is found in places of suffering, both with the one suffering and with the one giving mercy, in the most mysterious of ways.
  2. Those who imagine God as hard and ungracious are judged severely. Those who trust in God’s mercy in Jesus are encouraged immensely.
  3. Rather than ask what bridesmaid we are, Jesus invites us to see what a bridegroom He is.
  4. Instead of the miraculous, Jesus gives us the mundane. Why? Because the Kingdom of God belongs to these people.
  5. Discipleship involves listening to the Word of God. But discipleship is not only about listening to the Word of God. It also involves listening to the world.
  6. In the kitchen of Jesus, God gathers individuals who live on the margins. Their lives do not fit the dress code of a five-star restaurant. Their language offends and their behavior dismays and, deep down, like the disciples, we may just want Jesus to send them away.
  7. No matter how far down you fall into the wavering waters of “If you are...” prayers, Jesus is there.
  8. Jesus is the One leading and teaching God’s people, who sustains them when they hunger in the wilderness.
  9. Jesus fills us with the Spirit and sends us as sources of living water into the thirsting world.
  10. Jesus has come that we might know God, not from a distance, but from His personal intervention in our lives.
  11. But notice one thing. When Jesus speaks of commands, He does so in the context of love.
  12. Even when you are not sure where Jesus is going, you are on the way, because you are with Him: The Way, the Truth, and the Life. Jesus is right by your side.
