Bible Verses: Psalm 51:1-12; John 12:20-33 | Libby Grammer

We are not God, and when we try to be, we fall into the pitfalls of sin. Thankfully, the nature of God is one of mercy toward us, God’s children. In the season of Lent, we focus on penitence, asking for forgiveness for sins, but we should also be deeply grateful for a God who seeks out relationship with us and offers forgiveness and grace. We are a fortunate people to worship such a God. That new point of view might make our Lenten journey a lot less about ourselves (and lack of chocolate) and a lot more about the God who seeks after us in covenant relationship.
