The Second Sunday in Lent

28 Februray 2021

 

The second covenant in this year’s Lenten readings is the one made with Abraham and Sarah:  God’s promise to make them the ancestors of many, with whom God will remain in everlasting covenant.  Paul says this promise comes to all who share Abraham’s faith in the God who brings life into being where there was no life.  We receive this baptismal promise of resurrection life in faith.  Sarah and Abraham receive new names as a sign of the covenant, and we too get new identities in baptism, as we put on Christ.

First Reading: Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16

As with Noah, God makes an everlasting covenant with Abraham and Sarah.  God promises this old couple that they will be the ancestors of nations, though they have no child together.  God will miraculously bring forth new life from Sarah’s womb.  The name changes emphasize the firmness of God’s promise.

Psalm: Psalm 22:23-31

All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord. (Ps. 22:27)

Second Reading: Romans 4:13-25

Paul presents Abraham as the example for how a person comes into a right relationship with God not through works of the law but through faith.  Though Abraham and Sarah were far too old for bearing children, Abraham trusted that God would accomplish what God had promised to accomplish.

Gospel: Mark 8:31-38

After Peter confesses his belief that Jesus is the Messiah, Jesus tells his disciples for the first time what is to come. Peter’s response indicates that he does not yet understand the way of the cross that Jesus will travel.

Announcements

  • Live Streaming the Worship Service

    As of Sunday, 31 January, we are now "live streaming" the worship services. Our Sunday Services are at 9:30 a.m. You can join in by signing on to the website, and click on Worship. You will see a box saying "Live Streaming." Click on that and you will see the service. If it doesn't work the first time, refresh the page and try again.  The service will also be archived on the website approximately 2 hours after the live stream. You can go to the Worship page and click on the Sunday, which should be the first on the list or on the home page to the right, it will tell you the latest service you can see and if it has Sunday's date, click on that and it will take you to the service.

    We will be eliminating the videotaping of the service, as long as we are live streaming and it is being archived on the website.

    It will seem a little different since it is live, there is no editing such as listing the readings and the hymns. However, you will see the hymn titles and Evangelical Lutheran Worship number above the hymn. The bulletin for the Sunday is also on the website so you can print the bulletin earlier and follow along just as if you were sitting in the nave of the church.

    Blessings,

    Living Grace Lutheran Church
