Lent, Day 26: Sunday, March 6, 2016

Good morning, Church! HALLELUJAH! HE IS RISEN; HE IS RISEN INDEED! Consider what Carl Trueman has written concerning the Lord’s Day: “[Denominational religion] has its liturgical calendar, its way of marking time: Six days of earthly pursuits and one day of rest and gathered worship. Of course, that is rather boring. Boring, that is, unless you understand the rich theology which underlies the Lord’s Day and gathered worship, and realize that every week one meets together with fellow believers to taste a little bit of heaven on earth.” If you are having a struggle with being bored during Sunday worship, maybe a change in perspective will help. Try considering that Sunday worship is A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN ON EARTH. If that does not help; well, let’s schedule a conversation time at my office 🙂 Maybe today’s Lenten Scripture readings and prayer will help: Psalm 66, 67; Genesis 48:8-22; Romans 8:11-25; John 6:27-40. “Loving Creator of mine, I feel the pace quicken, the time draw near. I am filled with joy as I move toward Easter and the promised reconciliation with You. Teach me to follow the example of Your Son, to be worthy of being called one of His people: a Christ-ian. Help me to live each day as He did turning hatred to love and conflict to peace. I await the new life with eagerness, faith and a deep gratitude. In Jesus’ holy name I pray. Amen.” Remember: no boredom this Lord’s day. Instead, may it be a thrilling, stimulating, and breathtaking spiritual experience. Thanks for journeying; Blessings to all–PT.
