40 Shades of Lent, Tuesday, Week III, 27 March 2019
Deuteronomy 4:1, 5-9///Matthew 5:17-19
Our almighty and loving Father, we thank you for remaining with us, for staying with us despite the many occasions we have left you. There are so many occasions we have not only forgotten but totally disregarded many of your laws in the belief that they no longer apply in our modern time, in our modern situations.
But we are very wrong, loving Father because your ways never go out of date. Always timely and relevant because your teachings set us free to be more loving and more faithful with you and one another.
So many times we have tried to run away from you when we felt held captive or burdened by your laws and teachings. The more we cry for freedom based on our understanding or whims, the more we are imprisoned.
Teach us to have more fresher perspective and view on your teachings and laws in Christ Jesus who had come to make us experience them in a more personal manner. Let us see the fulfillment of your laws and teachings by rededicating our selves to you, renewing our commitment in this spiritual journey so we may be fulfilled in you. Amen.
