We cannot save ourselves, but we can align ourselves with Christ

I thought this post was auspicious in its timing given the death of our Lord who came to save us.

We have no power to save our society. Nor do we have the power to save ourselves. All we can do is to make our best efforts to align ourselves with our Lord Redeemer in all that we think and do.
Recognizing our failings but maintaining hope and joy is a bittersweet place. It gives us the energy to continue to move forward while being true to the reality of the current situation—whether at a personal or societal level. It is in that quiet place where God softens our hearts and works miracles. It is the essence of Christianity.
This musical piece perfectly captures that for me—Adagio for Strings by Barber
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
