Day Thirty Five of Lent: Oh, How I love Jesus‏

28-Mar-2012

Day Thirty Five of Lent: Oh, How I Love Jesus

My brothers and sisters,

Today we learn about lifting up the Lord. In the first reading from the book of numbers, the people complained against God and In punishment, the LORD sent  Saraph serpents which bit and killed the people but when they cried out for help, the
LORD said to Moses,"Make a Saraph and mount it on a pole,and whoever looks at it after being bitten will live."This happened as the Lord had said.
In the gospel, like a trial scene, Jesus is defending himself as the people want to know who he is.He tells them that they'll really know him when he is “lifted up.”God transformed that tragedy of the death of Christ into a Glorious celebration. Easter is at hand and as we complete this Lenten journey, we must continue to lift up the name of the Lord and give him thanks, from the bottom of our hearts. Put your hope in the Lord.  Take courage and be strong.  - Ps. 26:14. The Lord answers all those who call on his name in prayers .We we cry out today in prayers and pray that the good Lord will prepare us for this big day which is at hand.

The Readings:  Numbers 21:4-9; Psalm 102:2-3, 16-21; John 8:21-30

Prayer

Heavenly father,  give us a perfect heart to receive your word, that we may bring forth fruit in patience.Make us eager to work with you in building a better world, so that it may listen to your Church and its gospel of peace.We confess, Lord, that we have sinned, wash us clean by your gift of salvation.We acknowledge that we are sometimes impatient and want to do things our way.Guide our hearts back to you and help us think beyond our own wants .Thank you for the many blessings and for sending your son Jesus to die for our Sins.May we be reconciled with one another this lent so that we can celebrate the joy of Easter.

May this song remind us of God's  Unconditional Love as as we repent and accept him as Lord and savior of our lives.You might be going through the worst time of your life but God still loves you more than you can ever imagine.
