Holiest is the LORD (Isaiah 6:1-8). What a healthy reminder as we celebrated the Holy Trinity this past weekend. It is easy to make everything in our lives common and have life become mundane. But our God engages us and sets us apart! We are not common but rather through baptism have been connected to the Holiest One – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. There is nothing mundane or common about that!

How easy it is to hit a lull in the excitement after the Easter season. As we celebrated Pentecost, we are reminded of a simple reality: The story has just begun! The Holy Spirit has been given to the Church and the work of Christ continues. Forgiven and renewed by his finished work on the cross, we get to live that joy of self-giving and bring life to others. We get to be the Body of Christ in the world! God continues to work in and among us! Rejoice in the gift and continue the story! (Acts 2:1-21)

Ask anything according to His will; He will hear you (1 John 5:14). What a comfort! It is a comfort not because we get whatever we ask, but because He filters all the bad stuff out and only gives us what is good and appropriate. What a blessing! What a privilege we have to be able to ask with such freedom!

Today is a day of hope and confidence. It’s the 40th day of Easter, the day we celebrate the Ascension of our Lord. Christ not only was raised from the dead, but He has ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God. Christ reigns!! The one who cared enough about you to die for you, even in the face of your flaws and sin, He rules over all! With such a joyous reality, we realize the confidence we have as we live and begin to understand a little about the hope and riches we hear about in Ephesians 1:15-23. May you know such joy today!

As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you. Abide in my love. (John 15:9) YOU are loved. It can be difficult to remember such joy in our lives. We can feel forgotten, ignored, and disrespected. Regardless. YOU ARE LOVED! God has acted for you and does act for you. Remember that joy and abide in it. Even as the Son did, so too abide in His love.

We give thanks for all of our mothers and their service to us and society. Thank you for all that you have done and do!

John 15:1-8 We are branches connected to the vine. We are attached to Jesus. That means nourishment and belonging; it means pruning and the healthy care of our God, the Vinedresser; it means bearing fruit. What does that all look like in your life? What kind of fruit is present? What does the connection to the vine look like? What opportunities are present for the Vinedresser to prune?

Psalm 23/John 10:11 Jesus is the Good Shepherd. What a great comfort to know! Even while we don’t have a clue what is going on in our life or in the world around us, we can rest, in the midst of our ignorance/confusion, in the loving arms and loving lead of our Shepherd who does know and does understand.

Luke 24:36-49 Who is the Christ? What does this all mean? The disciples had questions. Jesus gave them understanding through the Scriptures. What a helpful reminder for us to grow in our understanding through the Word. How informative as we engage others and try to help them understand as well. Keep reading. Keep sharing. Be shaped by the Christ of the Scriptures.

1 John 1:1-2:2 Life was made manifest. LIFE. We have seen it in Christ. The resurrection confirms it. We see it still today. We have been given it; we live it. In Christ, we see relationship with God full and true. In Christ we are restored to life, to relationship with God. It shows itself in forgiveness and love. As we live in the peace of Easter, may we continue to live bearing Christ, our life, to others in all that we do.

The story has been passed down and so we rejoice. Christ has been raised from the dead! Alleluia! He has restored our relationship with God through His death and resurrection! Alleluia! What a joy to have the story passed down! What a call for us to pass down the story as well so that it is not just we who rejoice, but the ‘they’ in our lives rejoice as well! (1 Corinthians 15:1-11)

This week we remember our Lord and His great sacrifice for us. We follow Him to the cross with gratefulness. By His death we have life; in His death we see life. May we be renewed in the joy of self-giving as we see and celebrate the life given by our Lord this Holy Week. (Mark 14-15)

“I will meditate on your precepts.” “Teach me your statutes!” “I will delight in your statutes; I will not forget your word.” What a healthy reminder of the call to be in the Word. We meditate on them, we learn from them, we delight in them, so that they would have their way with us. We look to grow in understanding and life through them. The Scriptures are truly that rich and deep; they are that good for us! (Psalm 119:9-16)

Psalm 107 highlights the faithfulness of our God and His steadfast love. We see this joy as God saves His people. At times such love means harsh rebuke. This love is clear when we find ourselves trying to conform to the world around us or do things the way that ‘feels good’ but God calls us out by His Word; He will deliver us! At times such love means comfort. He encourages us in midst of the brokenness all around us; He will deliver us! In each instance, we see His steadfast love enduring forever.

When we hear the Ten Words, how easy it is for us to think of all the things that we are to do. You shall not covet; you shall not bear false witness; etc. But the most important word comes before those ‘to do’s: “I am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.” It is not a ‘to do’ at all, but an ‘already been done’. Our God gives the word of deliverance and freedom, the word of life. We hear that Word most clearly in the Christ as he frees us to life in his name. (Exodus 20:1-17)

03/03/2021

The Lenten journey, the journey of discipleship is simple. We are following Jesus. Jesus goes to the cross. He gives his life for the life of the world. He truly lives demonstrating the joy of love for the other for which we have been created. He calls us to follow Him having freed us to true life by his cross. – Such a simple truth; such a difficult reality for us to carry out. Lord, continue to show us the way and renew us in life by your cross. (Mark 8:27-38)
