I think that verse points to a current problem we have in our world. The problem afflicts many people. It’s a god-complex. It comes in various sizes but I bet most of us know more than one person with it. And by know, I mean on a personal level. And then, of course, there are the people we know who don’t know us; politicians, Hollywood stars, sports figures. Of those, we can point to a few more with this god-complex.

This verse reminds us that only one person can save us. JESUS.

Our responsibility is to cooperate with him and bring about good in the world. Not by thinking we can do it ourselves, but that we can do it with him.

What you do in the pan of salvation is between you and God. It looks different for each of us. But we are each called to something. Pray, ask what your something is, and then do it with Jesus.

    Lovely reflection on this passage. It’s sad, but we do tend to think we can do it on our own. Only Jesus can save us.
