Repent: Turn to Jesus; He changes your life

5th Wednesday of Lent, Luke 7:44-50
Jesus’s love changes our lives. Sin becomes more and more appalling, God’s will becomes more and more appealing. People become less and less strangers, and more and more souls for whom Jesus died. Life becomes less and less grueling and more and more an opportunity to love and serve our Savior. So, repent. In faith turn to Jesus; he changes everything about your life.

Nailed! Now That’s Commitment

4th Wednesday of Lent, Luke 23:33-34
33 When they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him there, along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left. 34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up his clothes by casting lots. Luke 23:33-34 (NIV2011)

Repent: Turn to Jesus! He holds the key to heaven.

3rd Wednesday of Lent, Luke 23:35-43
And because that’s Jesus we can pray Jesus remember me! Remember me when I’m in pain, when I’m suffering, when I lose a loved one, when life proves to me again and again that I’m not in heaven. And he does remember and one day we will be with Jesus and a forgiven criminal in paradise. So, turn to Jesus; he holds the key to heaven!

Repent: Turn to Jesus and Not to Yourself

Ash Wednesday, Luke 18:9-14
It’s not your work, your prayers, your dutiful service, your commitment to your family or church or country that saves you. It’s Jesus and His cross. There God HAS been merciful to you, there God HAS forgiven you, there God HAS lavished grace upon grace to you forever. Repent! Don’t turn to yourself, turn to Jesus and only him always.
