The Sovereign Love of God


T he S eason of L ent

Fifth Sunday in Lent March 21 - 27, 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 The Son of Man Must Be Lifted Up, John 12.20-33

During the Feast of Passover, some Greeks came to Jerusalem to worship and desired to see Jesus. Jesus affirmed that his hour had come, and now it was the time to be glorified. He said that unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it would remain alone. However, if it dies, it would bear much fruit. He declared that if he was lifted up from the earth, he would draw all men to himself. Jesus is the pattern to be shared by all true believers. All those who serve him, the Father will honor.
