So far in each week of Lent we have talked about what it is that we need to offer up to God. The good news of this weeks lectionary is that no matter how difficult and hopeless life may seem, our God is a God of hope. When his children cry out to him to him in faithfulness he hears their prayers, is compassionate and merciful and breathes new life. Yes, even death itself is no barrier to the loving goodness of our heavenly Father.
Albeit a valley of dry bones, a sorrowful grave or the desert of sinful human hearts, the giver of life will not be defeated. In fact he loves us so much that he became one of us and in the ultimate act of his life has given his love to set us free!
To him be Glory forever. Amen.
Till next time….Andrew.
