Lord, in this Lenten season
we journey with you
on the road to Jerusalem.
You told the disciples what was coming.
You confronted the powers that be,
and they crucified you.
You said it was part of a plan
to redeem us. You showed that real life
is more than physical being.
It’s belonging to your kingdom
of love, no matter what.
You showed the way.
Help us to follow. Amen.
“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”
Hymn: Love Divine, All Loves Excelling
