The Sovereign Love of God


T he S eason of L ent

Fourth Sunday in Lent March 14 - 20, 2021


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 3.14-21 As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness so that healing occurred as they saw the serpent and believed God for healing, so too Jesus must be lifted up on the Cross, and all those who believe in him will not perish but have eternal life. God loved the world so much he gave his only Son, sending him not to condemn the world but to save it through his atonement. Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of God who offered his life in response to his Father’s command, that every believer in him may live forever.
