The First Week of Lent – Saturday
March 7, 2020
by Jill Duffield, Presbyterian Outlook editor
The assurance of Jesus’ presence is not for our sake only. We are given a commission and sent to share the Good News we’ve heard. Today, how are you fulfilling the Great Commission? In what ways are you making disciples and teaching Jesus’ commandments? Who are those who taught you about Jesus?
Lord, we are reluctant to make disciples and teach your commandments. We feel uncertain about what to do. Yet, you promise to be with us and to send the Spirit to empower us. Help us to live what we’ve learned so completely that everything we do bears witness and points others to you. Amen.
