Why should the devil have all the good music?

Jesus Washing the Feet of the Disciples

I was looking a a friend’s post on Facebook about having ashes placed on your forehead on Ash Wednesday. While reading the discussion, Revelation 13.16-17 came to mind. “He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name” (NIV).

I’m not one to quote from the Revelation of John all that often. This book is a hard one to read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest. So much of it is caught up in the history and politics of its day. Still, the idea of having the mark of the beast versus having the mark of Christ rattled around in my mind.

If truth be admitted, we have both marks on us during a human lives. We struggle. We make mistakes. We triumph. We serve.

But, we gotta serve somebody. May Lent surprise you with grace.
