Mercy and grace
An excerpt from Ephesians 2:4-5 (NRSV)
God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ – by grace you have been saved.
Reflection from Sharon Henley-Gramer:
We all have our trespasses, and many of us have sinned (by not following the 10 commandments). God is rich with mercy and forgives us so that we can enjoy our lives.We need to always remember that it is through grace we are forgiven.During this time in Lent, may we all be conscience of daily prayer and ask for forgiveness for our trespasses.
For further study and prayer, the readings assigned for today are:
Psalm 77, Job 4:1-21, Ephesians 2:1-10
”What Stood Will Stand”
Lyrics by Wendell Berry; music by Paul Halley”
“Field and wood and all in them
Rejoin the primal Sabbath’s hymn
Et expecto resurrectionem motuorum
(And I look for the resurrection of the dead)
Et vitam venturi saeculi. Amen, alleluia!
(And the life of the world to come. Amen, alleluia!).”
