This Sunday will mark the fourth Sunday of Lent – over half way through the season. On Sundays during worship, we have been exploring the idea of Covenant. We have learned from the stories of God’s covenant between Noah and all of humanity, God’s covenant with Abraham and Sarah, and the covenant of law, given to Moses. The very first Sunday of Lent, we defined covenant as being based on trust between the two parties.
This Sunday, we will explore how God’s covenant of love, given to us all, becomes personal for each of us through the sacrifice of Jesus. In Christ, God became us. Through faith in Christ we are saved. And that faith is unbreakable because of the perfect love of God. I hope you will join us as we are reminded once again, that:
Because of God’s great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgression – it is by grace you have been saved. Ephesians 2:4-5
