Lenten Reflection: Feb 24

Sign up at this link to receive the Lenten reflections via email each day!

Today’s texts: Genesis 37:25-36; 1 Corinthians 2:1-13; Mark 1:29-45

Mark 1:29-45

“So He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and immediately the fever left her. And she served them.” Mark 1:31(NKJV).

Lent is a time to set aside time in reflection on Jesus Christ- His suffering and His sacrifice, His life, death, burial and resurrection.

I grew up in Myanmar (Burma) one of the most serious poverty stricken countries in the world. But God sent His missionaries to introduce the relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  Jesus Christ acted. He took the initiative. He brought His grace into the brokenness of our country and our lives. And called us to serve Him. By His grace we could reflect Jesus Christ in our daily life.

The mother of Peter and James was a passive receiver.  Her response afterwards when she was healed, was to go to the kitchen and make them dinner.  This shows us that being in a relationship with Jesus is important, and in that relationship we need to let Jesus bring His act of grace into our lives as He sees fit.  Because He is a God of love, his actions speak restoration into our lives. We must trust as the disciples did. Trust Jesus with a faith and a conviction which will allow him to act for us.
