Just Thought January 27th – 28th
Hard to believe we are celebrating the second Sunday of Lent already; did we not just have Christmas?
Not saying the above as a negative, we are blessed to have these forty days to reflect on God’s immense love for us, in going above and beyond, by giving us His only Son, Jesus. It just doesn’t get any better than that, dear friends, yes!
In our First Reading, we see Abraham put to the test in what the Lord God asked of him. Abraham, probably with a very heavy heart was going to do as asked, when God seeing his faith, said to him, “Do not lay you hand on the boy.”
Our loving God, like Abraham, did not withhold His only Son, but handed Him over for you and me, on the Cross of Calvary.
In today’s Psalm, Jesus believed, even facing all that was ahead, that He was the Son of Man, given to us, to suffer and die for our sins, and in so doing giving us eternity with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.Reflecting on our readings, I feel God’s message to us this week-end is to do our part to help those who are struggling, I don’t mean just with the snow and weather, but with so many issues.
Perhaps, a phone call, a prayer, visit, just to show we care. God will show us the way, just be open to His direction in our lives is all that is needed.
We are indeed blessed to have access to God 24/7, yes!!
