In going up to Jerusalem and the cross, Jesus never loses sight of those He meets on His way. And neither should we—either in how we treat our neighbor, or in regard to the faith that he provides for us and our loved ones in our times of need here.
That is something for us not only to keep in mind for our comfort and confidence, but for our daily, work-a-day lives as well--lest we go through life like the rich man who had no time for Lazarus.
You see, as His baptized children, you are each members of the body of Christ today. And that means where you go, Jesus goes to save and heal.
