Lenten Reflection: Day 21

Today's Lenten website reflection comes from Redeemed Online. Kathleen McCarthy talks about the gift God gives us & asks what are you willing to give of yourself.

"+ What an amazing God we have.

As a parent, there is perhaps nothing more difficult than watching your kids suffer. God the Father gave his only son, knowing full well the ending Jesus would face. His love is amazing. He loves so unselfishly.

How do you receive this love? It remains an abstract idea or just a nice concept until we encounter this love. He gives it each and every day for us.

Here's a great thought for your prayer today: "It is always the time of hope, confidence and love. Everything passes; love remains. We will not be disappointed."- Cardinal Carlo Maria Martin

Kathleen McCarthy talks today about why God would give his only son and challenges you to consider what you are willing to give of yourself to share the gospel.

+ Taking it offline

What's the most effective thing you have done this Lent to share the gospel? Do that again today.
Step out of your comfort zone to encounter someone who needs to know God's love today.
Ask someone to pray with you.
Pray for continued opportunities to witness to Jesus in conversations with coworkers, classmates, friends, and family members."
