Season of Lent (2018)

SEASON OF LENT: During this season leading up to Easter, we will return to our journey through the Gospel of John.

Sunday February 18: Betrayed and Denied (John 13:18-38) Today is a special day for two reasons: it is both the first Sunday in Lent and the first Sunday of the Chinese new year. For our Lenten season we will continue our journey through the Gospel of John. At the beginning of the passion narrative, we have Jesus both betrayed and denied. Both these actions against Jesus are still happening but Jesus, then as now continues to reach out in love. 

Devotional thought:  Have you ever felt like Judas or Peter? Be grateful for the forgiving call of Christ.

Sunday February 25: Preparations for the Journey (John 14:1-14) It is helpful to know where you are going and how to get there in your journey of life. Jesus comforts his disciples and us with some vital information.

Devotional thought: What are your next steps?

Sunday March 4:  Holy Spirit (John 14:15-31; & John 16:5-16) While Jesus warned he was leaving he also assured them he was not leaving them alone. He would send the Holy Spirit who would, come along side of the disciples as a reminder, a teacher, a guide and a light of truth. This same presence of God is at work within among and around us.

Devotional thought: Pray for the Spirit to have freedom to work in your life.
