Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 325

  1. “Dear woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “here is your mother” (John 19:26-27).

Love one another. Even as He marches toward the assigned agony, Jesus’ continues the message of His mission. The grieving mother is attached to the love of a disciple. This is what we do. We fulfill His mission when we love one another, when we step into one another’s lives with the compassion and support of real family. We prove we are His when we do the hidden things; not the moments of accolades, but the small sacrifices that provide hope and future for the broken. The text says simply that John took her into his home–a small matter, surely. But there are no small matters in the kingdom of God. I would imagine those we see as small may be our truly greatest moments.
