Mike explored the challenges of Lent and looked at how Jesus challenged Nicodemus to change. He closed by encouraging us to persevere with our Lenten challenges and not give up (it’s also not too late to start).
Reading - Matthew 4:1-11. Jo looked at the three temptations of Jesus in the wilderness and expanded on how they might affect us today. Lent is a time for self discipline, but do we sub-conciously put our own needs and desire before our love of God.
Readings - Exodus 24:12-end, and Matthew 17:1-9. Karen looks at these two passages and compares their messages of God being revealed to us in different ways. Do we wonder at the way God reveals himself and the message he brings. God's invitation is to us personally to meet with him and be changed - to adopt a different view of God and of life.
Readings - Psalm 112, aand Matthew 5:13-20. Jo looks at what being salt and light meant to the early Christians, and how it applies to us today. How do we bring life and wholeness into the world around us?
