This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“Amen, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death before they see that the kingdom of God has come with power” (Mark 9:1).
Reflection: The second coming has not happened yet, so what did Jesus mean? He meant that they would see him in the glory of the resurrection. He appeared to many of the disciples after his resurrection, and told them full authority had been given to him. These disciples saw the kingdom of God established in power and glory.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, you rule the universe. May we find the freedom that comes from subjecting all our choices to you. Amen!
