What does it mean to be “born again”?
It is the discovery or awakening to the inner life of Divine Love.
Getting to this place of "discovery" or "awakening" has everything to do with the Cross of Christ.
“…so must the Son of Man be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.”
Christ is crucified in order to set us free from sin and death.
With this freedom to turn toward LIFE, we can become more aware of the Holy Spirit, we can become more aware of the Love of the Father who has created us.
To know and experience the Holy Spirit is to know and experience eternal life.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.”
This verse captures the entire Gospel!
God’s love is for YOU.
His Love keeps us from perishing.
To know His love is to be drawn into a life without end.
Lenten Journey into Love
Lent is a journey to the life and love of the Resurrection.
Lent amplifies the spiritual nature that should be inherent throughout the whole of our lives.
As we enter more deeply into the mystery of the Lord’s Love, as a church, let us strive to become more effective in drawing others into that very same Love and Life.
