The Third Sunday of Lent
Sunday, March 24, 2019
At the heart of this week’s Old Testament reading, Isaiah 55:6-9, is God’s call for sinners to forsake the ways of evil and turn to the Lord, full assured that God’s pardon is freely available.
In 1 Corinthians 13:1-13, Paul recalls Israel’s experience in the wilderness as a caution against false confidence and a reminder to flee the sins of idolatry and self-indulgence.
In the Gospel reading, Luke 13:1-9, Jesus turns a lesson about whether suffering is deserved into a hard call to obedience. He then tells a parable that holds out hope that the timeline for ultimate judgment will be tempered by patience.
Saturday Worship Theme
A worship series entitled, “Beneath the Cross of Jesus”, continues at this weekend’s 5:00 p.m. Contemporary Praise Worship Service. The series explores what it means for us to live our lives in response to God’s manifold love and grace. The sermon is provided by Pastor Rich Ajer.
May God bless our worship.
