God's Covenant
 
 
March 7, 2021
Third Sunday of Lent
 
"God's Covenant with God's Beloved Community...Covenant in Relationship"
 
Scriptures: 
Exodus 20:1-17     Psalm 19
1 Corinthians 1:18-25     John 2:13-22
 

Exodus 20:1-17 provides us with the blueprint of how we can live together as God's Beloved Community. They are our rules of relationship, that provide a new way forward. in Psalm 19, we recognize the full scope of what God has done for us. All of creation is a testimony of God's provision. Everything God created was created to live together in harmony. Nature provides for us and is in relationship with us. What we "see" also gives praise to the creative wonders of God...was created to "live together" in harmony. 1 Corinthians 1:18-25 brings us the message that the church is to "serve" the world "with" God's perfect wisdom. We are to be in relationship with others...not strive to be superior "over" the world. In John 2:13-22, Jesus shows us that we, too must be prepared to right the wrongs within the community. For Jesus, the temple was the place to worship God, who loves everybody equally and whose love cannot be bought. This scripture encourages us to ask ourselves: When I see things going on which are wrong do I do anything about it? Do I try to "right the wrongs?" Maybe we need to ask Jesus to share some of his courage to help us to stand up for the truth and not give in to those who disagree with or threaten us.

Daily Devotion
Monday, March 1, 2021

Romans 4:16-17: “For this reason it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his descendants, not only to the adherents of the law but also to those who share the faith of Abraham (for he is the father of all of us as it is written, ‘I have made you the father of many nations’) - in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist.” We place so much trust in our faith in God. Abraham’s faith was confirmed with promises fulfilled, as Sarah gave birth to Isaac (as impossible as this had seemed). He was beginning to see things through divine eyes, not on what is humanly possible or impossible. Faith can be felt as complete trust or confidence in the belief of his promising presence. Our faith is often based on our own spiritual senses. His establish covenant strengthens us and our faith grows stronger. The seeds of Abraham were sewn, nations were born and the power of God‘s grace was established. Future generations, including Jesus Christ born from the direct line of divine blood, secured and fulfilled the divine prophecies of time.  Prayer: Heavenly father, we have faith in you, your guidance and protection. We pray for strength in faith through all generations. Amen.
