"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ."
A German Pastor named Martin Niemoeller who lived in Germany during the Nazi era said this: “No, the church has not been victorious, she has failed and is failing still because she assumes that the judgment that is passed around her applies to the world and not to herself.” He goes on to say, “…no one should lose the chance for forgiveness which still is being offered to us, perhaps for the last time in the history of our people.” In other words, you never know what tomorrow brings.
We pray: Father, through our observance of Lent, help us to understand the meaning of Your Son's death and resurrection, and teach us to reflect it in our lives. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. AMEN
Lord’s blessings on ya,
