Lent 3

“Is the Lord among us or not!” cried the children of Israel while they were wandering in the wilderness for 40 years. They were hungry. They were thirsty. At least that had something when they were slaves in Egypt.

If God is with me why??? “It would be better if…”Sound familiar? especially when it seems things are not going your way.

St. Paul says “we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

In the midst of your worldly sufferings, drink deeply of the stricken rock, Jesus Christ our Lord. In Him is the only true nourishment.

These Seeds of Faith have been sown by St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Bridgeport, NE. I’m Pastor Allen Strawn.
