Death is Defeated — Jesus Has Won lenten journey 2020

image188

 Lent is a season of repentance. As we begin on Ash Wednesday, we consider our place before God. Who are we? We are nothing. We bring nothing to God. We have nothing to offer. We are sinful and evil. God is justified to judge us guilty. 

image189

 The blessedness of the season is the forgiveness of sins we receive, NOT our repentance. This is the point of Lent. 

image190

 In the midst of recognizing our sin, we also recognize that our help comes only from the Lord, and from no one and nothing else. 

image191

 Our God forgives us. He helps us. And in response, we worship Him. This is the confession of the Old Testament covenant: He IS our God. He has placed His name on us. When did He place His name on us? In Baptism.

image192

 Our repentance continues as we cry for mercy. And the Lord is the right one to cry out to. We are confronted with our own sin as we cry out in a confession of trust in Him. We trust He will have mercy because He has promised to do so.

image193

 Christ is God’s steadfast love. In Christ there is plentiful redemption. God has more grace in Christ than we have sins. Thus, we are forgiven and set free.
