Lent 4

I only need to take off my glasses to know what it is like to not be able to make out any detail in the world. But the total darkness of blindness terrifies me. One thing that I do know for certain… even in earthly blindness, “the works of God will be displayed.” (John 9:3)

We need not try and find what causes each hardship in our lives. Instead, how will the work of God be displayed?

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the joy set before Him, endured the cross, scorning its shame…(Hebrews 12:2)

And that is the greatest work of God that He has done. He sent Jesus to endure the cross to take away our sin. That is the greatest work of God displayed in our lives.

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