Worship Theme for Sunday, February 25

This Sunday is the Second Sunday in the season of Lent. During this season we hear of God’s relationship with God’s people. This relationship is a story of promises fulfilled. We hear the story of Abraham and Sarah and God’s covenant with them. St. Paul in his writings reminds us that we are the multitudes of nations that were promised to Abraham. In baptism, Jesus Christ binds us to God into his death.  God’s story with creation is that God persists in loving us.

Scripture readings: Genesis 17: 1- 7, 15 – 16; Psalm 22: 23-31; Romans 4:13-25; Mark 8:31-38

Prayer of the Day: “O God, by the passion of your blessed Son you made an instrument of shameful death to be for us the means of life. Grant us so to glory in the cross of Christ, that we may gladly suffer shame and loss for the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. ” Amen.
