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 15 Wednesday, March 4 Psalm 105:1-5 (Full reading Psalm 105:1-11, 37-45) O give thanks to the LORD, call on his name, make known his deeds among the peoples. 2Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wonderful works. 3Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice. 4Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his presence continually. 5Remember the wonderful works he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he has uttered…
Like the psalmist, we give thanks daily for all that God has provided for us. Rejoice. Share the good news. Look out the window on a cold, gray winter morning. God gives us gray days so we can experience the true joy in the beauty of our sunny days. Rejoice. God is always with us. We always need to remind ourselves of the wonderful things the Lord has done. Rejoice. -Barb Tate
DAY 16 Thursday, March 5 1 Peter 2:4 (Full reading 1 Peter 2:4-10) 4Come to him, a living stone, though rejected by mortals yet chosen and precious in God's sight, and 5like living stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
Remember the Sunday School song, “The Wise Man Built His House Upon the Rock”? (Paraphrased as “The Wise Person Builds a Life Upon Jesus”) Google the song and share it with your family because it is what Peter is asking us to do with our lives. Peter states that Jesus is a “living stone” – a cornerstone on which we can build our lives. We are also “living stones” and strive to live a holy life. Each of us is a unique “living stone”. Each of us has been formed by the people who have influenced us, and by our joys, and by our sorrows. What we have in common is that we can place our unique selves upon the Cornerstone Jesus. We are chosen people, loved by God and saved by Jesus who died for our sins and rose again. Alleluia! -Pam Murphy
