Love Like This

The season of Lent is known as a wandering in the wilderness for the Christian.  Unlike the Old Testament Christians who wandered around for 40 years we have a goal in mind.  Jesus was also in the wilderness for 40 days, but he was tempted by the devil.  During our 40 day period from Ash Wednesday to Easter we look at the Passion of our Lord.  We consider his great love for us.  Our 40 day journey ends at the cross.  This year we will be using the sermon series Walk This Way as we look at different areas of the life that we might need to work on.  Each sermon will find its basis in the appointed Epistle lesson for each of the five Sundays in Lent.  An Epistle is a letter, most often written by Paul, to a church that needed confort and instruction from God.  Our first sermon in Walk This Way is Love Like This.

Love can be confusing at best on Valentine’s Day.  God’s love is unique in that it doesn’t depend on the object of that love.  God’s love is unconditional and unending.

The Gospel appointed for the first Sunday in Lent is always about temptation.  Specifically the temptation of our Lord Jesus.  This Sunday is also Valentine’s Day.  We will look at the Epistle lesson, Paul’s letter to the Romans where he explains matters of the hear from a different angle than you might find at a Hallmark store.  Love like God.  Watch and see what God says about matters of the heart!
