Third Sunday of Lent

“While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” If there is one eternal message of hope that we need to write in our hearts, this is
it. During the Lenten season we are called to fast, pray and give
alms. In other words, we’re called to turn away from the things
that lead us to sin. We are to improve our relationship with God.
We need to be able to attentively listen to His voice and not be
led astray by other voices. We have to give of our time, talents,
and treasure to help others who are in greater need. The world
continuously tells us that we don’t have the time, ability or resources
to change anything, so just leave it alone.

But there are no hopeless situations with God. St. Paul tells us
“we boast in the hope of the glory of God and hope does not disappoint”.
As difficult as our daily trials and tribulations are, they
cannot and must not steal our hope. When we live our lives as
followers of Jesus, we receive and give hope to many who are in
need. We know the frustrations of our daily lives. Deplorable
situations exist everywhere and there seems to be no way to bring
about a positive change. But we know that with God all things
are possible.

Jesus entered this world as an innocent infant so that He could
fully relate to what we experience each and every day of our
lives. He knew that His mission would end in His death. Yet He
accepted that undeserved death because He knew it was the only
price that could purchase our forgiveness. “God proves His love
for us in that wile we were still sinners Christ died for us”. What
are we willing to give up to follow our Savior?
