Hello Friends —

I hope you have had a good week. Today’s post is a review of the Bible readings and Challenge Questions from the past week, week six. I have relished in (re)reading about the life of Jesus during this past week. There are always new lessons to be learned from the scriptures, the same passages read at different time can bring forth new insights. I pray that this is something that you have experienced as well. A common themed question during Lent is, “Why did Jesus have to die?” The book I’m reading, “A Lent Devotional – Uncovering the Love of Jesus” by Asheritah Ciuciu; presents that question in each chapter. I have discovered that this question can be foundational to answering the question from a more personal viewpoint. I personally believe that Jesus died because it was the only option to reconcile the fractured relationship between humankind and God. God loves His creation but sin ruptured that relationship back in the Garden of Eden. God could have wiped out humankind all together and yet He chose to redeem us. I trust in God’s plan and I admit that I don’t understand a lot of it but that does not hinder by faith in God. I hope you enjoy the review and I look forward to sharing more with you tomorrow as we begin week seven of Lent. ~Peace

  • Day One: Jesus Loves The Unlovable
  • Day One: Challenge Question
    1. Have you ever loved someone who did not love you back?
    2. How did that affect your love for them?
    3. Have you ever been rejected or betrayed by someone you though loved you?
    4. How has this affected your view of Jesus’ love for you?
  • Day Two: Jesus Doesn’t Give Up
  • Day Two: Challenge Question
    1. Think of a time you were depending on someone you love to pull through for you, but they failed. Did that make you more likely or less likely to express love to them?
    2. In what ways does Jesus’ prayer for His disciples demonstrate unconditional and selfless love?
    3. How does Jesus express this love towards you today?
    4. What would it look like for you to preserve in selfless love toward someone close to you today?
