Pastor’s Page - March 2015 “LENT IS…”

Lent is many things to many people. Lenten sermons and midweek services cover many themes and topics throughout the years. But certain messages always stay the same. To enhance your journey throughout these 40 days, the following are some daily reminders of Lent intended to be read each day of the week and every week.

(Monday) Lent is a Reminder of Baptism

As Christians, we worship the one true God, who constantly invites our “yes” to His gift of abundant life. Baptism ushers this to us as Christ brings us into His death and resurrection. Lent, as a reminder of baptism, is a foretaste of the resurrection, and it leaves us hungering for life in all its fullness. The gift of the Spirit, poured out in Baptism and sealed at Confirmation, guides us in our journey to fullness of life through the sacraments and seasons. What does Christ’s Body and Blood mean to you in Lent? How does that meaning differ from other church seasons?

(Tuesday) Lent is a Lengthening of Days

With the lengthening of winter’s days we find ourselves contemplating the journey through Lent to Easter. The growing hours of daylight remind us of the resurrection’s light, Christ’s light, which our crucified and risen Lord shares time and time again in the sacraments, as well as in day-to-day encounters. What will you do with an extra hour of sunshine as winter comes to an end?

(Wednesday) Lent is a Time for a Change of Heart

Lent gives us time to consider our responses to Jesus’ command to love God and our neighbor. Our Lenten prayer then becomes one of repentance for sin, which fails to meet the demands of generosity. We all fall short. We ask not only for a change of heart, but a new heart and a right spirit--a spirit that is again at peace in Christ--that God would restore in us the heart of Christ, enlivened in us in Baptism. Consider Jesus’ command--how will your love for your neighbor today be a living reminder of God’s love for you?

(Thursday) Lent is Your Life and Mine, Hidden With Christ

Lent is a season of grace that invites us to fast from what distracts us, if only to recognize that only God can fulfill our deepest longings. Lent invites us to engage in generosity and works of mercy towards our suffering and needy brothers and sisters. Lent reminds us that our truest self lies hidden with Christ in God, and that in Christ we are one Body. How will you be generous tomorrow with what you’ve been blessed with today?

(Friday) Lent is a Time for Renewing our Trust

The resurrection experience of Jesus tells us that in Him, we can trust that the Father will raise us up in the power of the Spirit from the small deaths we so often seem to undergo during Lent, so that we might joyfully celebrate the fullness of life that is our inheritance through Baptism, at Easter. What small deaths has God raised you from in your life? This week? Today?
