Second Sunday in Lent
Watchword for the week — The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? Psalm 27:1
Sunday, March 13 — Genesis 15:1-12,17-18; Psalm 27
Philippians 3:17-4:1; Luke 13:31-35
A king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength. Psalm 33:16
But many who are first will be last, and the last will be first. Mark 10:31
Your gospel, precious Jesus, challenges us to review our priorities and assumptions. It makes demands of our loyalties and allegiances; it calls us to humility and sacrifice. Call us, by the message of salvation, to new life today. Amen.
