Deuteronomy 30:15-20; Psalm: 1; Luke 9:22-25

Lenten sacrifice

In this Lenten Season, the Word of God sets before us a choice. It sets before us life or death, sin or salvation. The Lord, the Word made flesh, sets before us a choice: to save our life or lose it. To save our lives we must renounce self-centredness and take up the cross of sacrifice in imitation of Christ. To be for and with others in love, to be reconciled to God and to one another, to de-centre the self and make room for God and others in our lives: that is a worthy sacrifice in imitation of Christ.
