Third Sunday in Lent, March 24, 2019
“Bless the Lord who forgives all our sins. His mercy endures for ever.”This past week, we explores how we have resisted having the mind of Christ formed within us in our life in our worshiping community and the diocese. Today, we reflect upon how we have experienced being conformed to the mind of Christ. We have been given good works to do as a worshiping community and as a diocese.
When have you seen these opportunities to serve and acted in a Christ-like manner?
What did this feel like, from beginning to end? How were you, your worshiping community, and the diocese changed as a result of faithfully answering the Spirit’s call to serve?
Let us rejoice together at the way the Spirit is shaping us to live into our baptism so that we can see act in a more Christ-like manner! Share your reflections with others. Use hashtag #livingmybaptism to share your reflections on social media.
Almighty God, you know that we have no power in ourselves to help ourselves: Keep us both outwardly in our bodies and inwardly in our souls, that we may be defended from all "adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
