Listen, God Is Speaking.... Lenten Devotions
These Lenten devotions were written by the congregation of Cross Lutheran Church. God sometimes speaks to us through a loud voice, while at other times through a still, small voice. Either way, God’s voice directs us throughout life. We trust God’s voice will move you throughout these Lenten days through prayer, worship, and sacrifice. God is with us in Jesus Christ. May you be blessed. Listen, God is speaking to you.
DAY 36 Wednesday, March 25 John 12:44 (Full reading John 12:34-50) 44Then Jesus cried aloud: "Whoever believes in me believes not in me but in him who sent me. 45And whoever sees me sees him who sent me. 46I have come as light into the world, so that everyone who believes in me should not remain in the darkness.
This affirmation that Jesus is the light of the world provides solace and peace. Recently, our nephew and cousin lost his best friend. As we read the email updates from family and friends, we began thinking about this verse and how the light of Jesus provides comfort and strength to those struggling with illness and injury, or in this case, trying to understand the loss of a vibrant, young man. When the end came, the boy’s mother began her last post quoting John, “For God so loved the world, he gave his only son.” Believing that Jesus is the light sustains and renews us and ensures that God is always with us. -Johnson Family (Andy, Sharon, Emily, and Ben)
DAY 37 Thursday, March 26 Philippians 2:1-4 (Full reading Philippians 2:1-11) If then there is any encouragement in Christ, any consolation from love, any sharing in the Spirit, any compassion and sympathy, 2make my joy complete: be of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. 3Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves. 4Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others.
When we work together, caring for the problems of others as if they were our problems, we demonstrate Christ’s example of putting others first. When we consider the interests of others as more important than our own interests, it is a positive step forward in maintaining unity among believers. -Bonnie Flitcroft
DAY 38 Friday, March 27 Jeremiah 33:2-3 (Full reading Jeremiah 33:1-9) 2Thus says the LORD who made the earth, the LORD who formed it to establish it — the LORD is his name: 3Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.
In these days of Smartphones and Caller ID, truly, who can say they answer every call? What an impossible idea to me . Yet, this passage reminds me that God does answer EVERY call. I may not always see or understand the answer, but through meditation, prayer, community, and quiet reflection, I am better able to see and hear the great things that God has promised me. I am reminded to call out to the Lord each day, and invite him into my not-so-perfect, often times super messy life. At the same time keeping myself open to receive the great and hidden things my Lord wants to share with me. -Patti Rozeski
