Liturgy Letter Newsletter – Fifth Sunday In Lent 2020 (Year A)

God Gives Life

God can make dead bones live (Ezekiel 37:1-14). We call out to him in the depths of suffering and wait patiently for his promises to be fulfilled (Psalm 130). Spiritual life and physical resurrection await those who are in Christ, so set your mind on the Spirit and refuse to live in hostility towards God (Romans 8:6-11). Jesus Christ, the Son of God, has power over life and death. He cares for his friends and defies their expectations, proving that he is Lord and Savior (John 11:1-45).

Light Dispels Darkness

“God looks at our hearts, not our outward appearances, as he showed when choosing David as king, prefiguring Christ (1 Samuel 16:1-13). Like David, we trust God; we have confidence in his protection even when we are in the midst of great difficulty (Psalm 23). The light of Christ’s grace and forgiveness dispels the darkness of sin (Ephesians 5:8-14) — he is the light of the world (John 9:1-41).” – Thomas Oden, Ancient Christian Devotional

Living Water

“Water is used throughout Scripture as a symbol of faith. In the Old Testament, it sometimes foreshadows Christ’s sacrifice for our sins (Exodus 17:1-7). In the New Testament, Jesus offers forgiveness to all, regardless of race or past misdeeds, and ‘living water,’ which is the Holy Spirit and eternal life (John 4:5-42). Through his death, we are reconciled to God (Romans 5:1-11), our Creator and King, to whom we offer praise and thanks for our salvation (Psalm 95).”

Faith and Life Through Jesus

Like Abraham, we are called to follow God in faith (Gen. 12:1-4). We must keep our eyes fixed on the one who made heaven and earth (Psalm 121). God cares for us and has promised to provide rest and grace for those who put their faith in him (Romans 4:1-5,13-17). God came to us through Jesus so that we might be made new and inherit eternal life through his name (John 3:1-17).
