Navigating Alignment

For us and for our salvation

he came down from heaven;

he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary,  

and was made human.

He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;

he suffered and was buried.

The third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures.

“Whoever welcomes one of these little ones in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.” Mark 9:37

“The one who listens to you listens to me; the one who rejects you rejects me; but the one who rejects me actually rejects him who sent me.” Luke 10:16

“The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.” John 6:29

“Before Abraham was born, I am!” John 8:58

“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them and they follow me.” John 10:27


26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”

29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be.30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid,Mary; you have found favor with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David,33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”

34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”

35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most Highwill overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. 

Luke 1:26-35


“Jesus took the 12 aside and told them, ‘We are going up to Jerusalem, and everything that is written by the prophets about the Son of Man will be fulfilled. He will be handed over to the Gentiles. They will mock him, insult him, spit on him, flog him and kill him. On the third day he will rise again.’” Luke 18:31-33

“Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly die. But God demonstrates his love for us in this: while we were still sinners Christ died for us.” Romans 5:7-8

“For I was resolved to know nothing when I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” 1 Corinthians 2:2


“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”

Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

John 14:1-6
