It Is Well with My Soul: The Sacred Roots Annual 2022-2023

WEEK 15 S econd S unday in L ent March 5 - 11, 2023

The Lenten Season, a forty-day period starting on Ash Wednesday and ending on Holy Saturday of Holy Week, calls us to reflect on Jesus’s suffering, crucifixion, and death. As disciples of the humble Nazarene, we embrace his lowliness and humility, seeking to share the mind of himwho was obedient to death, even death on a cross.

THIS WEEK’S THEME For God So Loved theWorld, John 3.1-17

In his conversation with Nicodemus, rabbi and member of the Jewish ruling Council called the Sanhedrin, Jesus explains the origins of true faith and the Kingdom of God. Without being born again from the Holy Spirit, one could neither see nor enter into the Kingdom of God. Salvation is entirely from the triune God alone. God the Father so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son so that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. The Father’s love, the Son’s sacrifice, and the Spirit’s impartation of life comprise the salvation of our triune God for us.

Eternal God, thank you for your sweet and abiding love. This is love – not that we loved you but that you loved us and gave to us your very own Son as a sacrifice and atonement for our sins. What shall we do with such love, but to simply love you back, and love our brothers and sisters as ourselves? Flood our hearts with your grace and love, for Christ’s sake, amen.
