Taste and See: Help

DSC09866a Tewkesbury.jpg

With God on our side who can be against us? Since God did not spare his own Son, but gave him up to benefit us all, we may be certain, after such a gift, that he will not refuse anything he can give. Could anyone accuse those that God has chosen? When God acquits, could anyone condemn? Could Christ Jesus? No! He not only died for us – he rose from the dead, and there at God’s right hand he stands and pleads for us.

Second reading for the 2nd Sunday of Lent
Romans 8:31-34

Struggling through Lent can be dispiriting. What makes it so much more bearable is knowing we do not do this alone, but have the support, the encouragement, the agency of Jesus himself to help us.

In our stumblings and our successes he is there with us guiding us, easing us on…

For this we give thanks.
