Lent 2021: In Rememberance of Me by Jocelyn Harris
“Teach me, Lord, the way of your decrees, that I may follow it to the end.”

In Remembrance of Me
“God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”(John 3:16) “God is light; in him there is no darkness.”
(1 John 1:5).
“Strive to live in harmony and peace with one another, and be willing to associate with people of low position. Bless those who persecute you. Do what is right in the eyes of everyone and do not take revenge, but leave room for God’s wrath. If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” (Romans 12:16, 14, 17b-21).
“Offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God.”(Romans 12:1)
“Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought.”(Romans 12:3b)
“Serve the Lord with gladness. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.”(1 Corinthians 13:6)
God desires for us to love one another, follow His Commandments, and live in harmony and peace. By doing this, it is done In Remembrance of Me.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, bring to our remembrance that you gave Your life to save us from our sins, and also, have eternal life. Guide us as we seek to live and follow Your greatest Commandment of Love by living in harmony and peace with one another. Amen

in their lives. Each testimony in the booklet is a personal reflection of their experiences.
We welcome you on this journey with us as we discuss our sacrifices and hope
that some aspect of the scripture, reflections, or prayers will inspire you as you
experience the season.
Read along with us each day or download the book to read along with us offline. May God bless and keep you throughout this season of reflection.
