Take Heart

“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (ESV)

These are the last words of instruction Jesus gives His disciples before the crucifixion. “…take heart…” could also be translated “Be courageous.”

Jesus is calling for His disciples to go beyond their own comfort, to do that which they might not otherwise, on behalf of Jesus. Yet Jesus goes beyond a call to “Be Courageous,” he tells them why they can be courageous: He has “overcome the world.”

All the pain of suffering of sin and death… He has overcome.

He has proven victorious over the worst...

One morning as I was driving to work around 7 am in the morning, I saw Don walking up the street I was driving on so I pulled over and rolled down my window and said, “Hey Don what’s up?”

He came over and when I got a close look at him; he had fat lip and a black eye.  One lens on his glasses was cracked.  I asked him if he was okay.  He said yeah, I am okay.   I asked if he wanted to get...

Child advocates decry Trump Administration plan to incarcerate children

E-mail Print PDF
ALBUQUERQUE — James Jimenez, executive director of New Mexico Voices for Children, issued the following statement on the Trump Administration’s proposed regulations regarding the Flores Settlement Agreement Sept. 9.

“We are appalled that the Trump Administration has taken another step away from simple human decency by trying to subvert the Flores Settlement Agreement. The number one priority of the Flores agreement is that children not be incarcerated. This foundational principle recognizes that the best way to ensure a child’s well-being is to keep them out of jail. These standards of protection have been in place for decades and there is no reason they should be...
