On the second Sunday in Lent, Pastor Karen Witt preached on what it means to follow Jesus to the cross. Karen noted that a quality associated with really following Jesus is courage. And how can a person be imbued with the courage to go all the way to the cross with Jesus? The Gospel lesson for the day gave us some hints … and our wise, loving pastor shed light on them for us.
“Jerusalem, Jerusalem … how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings ….” Luke 13:34. God himself gathers us, protects us, covers us and walks with us to Jesus’ cross. Hear Karen’s sermon and be inspired to trust and follow in the footsteps of your loving Savior.
