Hi Abide Family on this blessed Ash Wednesday. How are you “letting go and letting God?”
This week we will gather together via Zoom from 6:00-7:00pm to begin our Lenten Journey. (Please contact me if you need the Zoom link information).
This week we will focus on Genesis 9:8-17.
“Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him, 9 ‘As for me, I am establishing my covenant with you and your descendants after you, 10 and with every living creature that is with you, the birds, the domestic animals, and every animal of the earth with you, as many as came out of the ark. 11 I establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of a flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth.’ 12 God said, ‘This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: 13 I have set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16 When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.’ 17 God said to Noah, ‘This is the sign of the covenant that I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth.'”
To prepare for this week, I want you to think about this:
If God is making all things new, that means God is at work in you, creating newness within you too. How does that make you feel about yourself? About others?
I hope to see everyone Sunday. Stay safe!
