Impressive! The word used for the athletic prowess of a basketball player.
Impressive! The word used to describe a business colleague.
So what impresses me? What impresses you? What impresses Jesus?

I can too easily be diverted on my journey being impressed by money, power, or status. Even the disciples argued over who would be the greatest—an issue of status had infiltrated the group. Jesus tells them

Together, let’s seek Jesus, walk with Him and listen to Him that we might overflow with His character, being last and a servant of all.
Sharing the journey with you,
