Lent 2021: Peace & Love by Barbara Farrow Jones


“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God.Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.”

- Romans 5:1-5

Peace & Love

Times are difficult right now but if we believe, hope, love, patience, and perseverance will get us through this distress. Setting an example by treating our neighbor as we desire to be treated and having undying faith in God’s love, will bring us peace and help everyone traverse this threat to our existence. Hopefully, we will survive by harvesting the knowledge God has already given us and using it wisely.

During this Lenten season, let us meditate and rejoice because we have knowledge of a greater sacrifice. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 (NIV)

Prayer: Our Father, thank you for your never-ending love and for setting an example for us to extend peace and love to others as we deal with these difficult times. 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.
