Friday, The First Week Of Lent (Feb. 26)
Narrated by Bryan Bartels
[Jesus] said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. So the Son of Man is lord even of the Sabbath.” Mark 2:27-28
Spiritual amnesia is a common problem for us Christians. Amid the conflicting demands of daily life, we focus on our struggles and lose sight of God’s promises and his presence in our lives. The Sabbath day of rest and restoration was made for imperfect people like us so we can be reminded of God’s never-ending grace and care for us.
By his wounds, Jesus heals us. He is the Lord of the Sabbath who comes to our rescue time and time again. He redirects us when we wander off course, refreshes us when we grow weary, picks Us up when we stumble, and forgives us for our frequent failures. Remember to turn to him regularly for the healing you need.
REFLECT: Ponder how to keep remembering the Lord of love.
PRAY: Thank you, Jesus, for being there for me at all times. Amen.
