Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Description: On the 5th Sunday of Lent, John 12:20-33 shows us that, in our desire to trust God and follow Jesus wherever he leads us, it’s not a sin to feel troubled about it. Yes, we do have to be willing to lose our lives (i.e., our own agendas, our own desires, our own ideas on what we should do with our time, etc.) so that we can unite ourselves to Christ and his mission. However, we don’t have to like the loss. Jesus felt troubled by the sacrifices he would have to make.
