Lenten Reflection for Thur 2/14/2013

Psalm
am: 37:1-18
pm: 37:19-42 Deuteronomy 7:6-11
Titus 1:1-16 John 1:29-34

”…he saw Jesus coming toward him and declared,”Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! —-John 1:29

…And I myself have seen and have testified that this is the Son of God”  —-John 1:34

As I looked at the readings for today, I focused on the Gospel of
John. (John 1:29-34)
This passage brings Jesus and John the Baptist onto the same
stage. As I looked at John’s account I noted that it had a different
approach than that of the other gospels. I discovered that John’s
Gospel has a central theme of the incarnate Jesus. Jesus is the
incarnate Son of God. John the Baptist’s testimony is used to recognize
Jesus as the Lamb of God and the Son of God.
The Gospel of John gives us access to see God through Jesus because
Jesus shares God’s identity.
Jesus is God’s Word and work
in the world. I plan to spend this
Lenten season getting to know the
Gospel of John from my newly discovered
perspective and come to a
better understanding of my Heavenly
Father.
This is going to be a wonderful journey!
Bon Voyage!
