Fifth Sunday in Lent

Watchword for the week — I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope. Psalm 130:5

Sunday, March 26 — Ezekiel 37:1-14; Psalm 130
Romans 8:6-11; John 11:1-45

Solomon said at the dedication of the temple, “Will God indeed dwell on the earth?” 1 Kings 8:27

No one has ever seen God. It is God the only Son, who is close to the Father’s heart, who has made him known. John 1:18

Invisible God, we long to see you; we need to see you on the earth. Invisible God, you have become visible in Jesus—but not as we expected. Invisible God, may what we see in Jesus, especially forgiveness and service, be reflected in us. Amen.
