About the Cover: An abandoned and rusting plough is a sad reminder that following the Lord is no half-hearted business. Jesus wants our whole heart, devotion, and life. He will not give up until He has redeemed us completely. He is relentless in this way. The very first verse of our Gospel for today says, “[Jesus] set His face to go to Jerusalem” (Luke 9:51). He fixed his eyes on the cross for us.
