Greetings in the name of Lord Jesus Christ,
Beloved in Christ,
Let us thank God for the bountiful blessings and mercy we experienced in the last month. We are going through the Lent season. During the Lent season we do fasting and spent more time for prayer and meditation. Fasting is not merely the refusal of food and drink, the literal meaning of fasting is 'to dwell with God'. To examine our lives in the light of the word of God.The word of God is the basis of our christian living.It always directs our life and helps us to distinguish between right and wrong. makes us conscious of our errors and failures.The word of God only helps us to purify our life.There are many books which give us moral teaching, but in order to evaluate them we need the insights gained from the study of the word of God. The study of the word of God enables us to empower other people and also to reshape the structures of society in
conformity with the spirit of God.
In this month we meditate on so many themes as per the lectionary.First Sunday we meditate Jesus Christ forgives our sins, we submit our lives in the hands of our eternal redeemer. Jesus Christ who redeems each and every creation. Second Sunday thinking about Jesus Christ includes all, We all are the creation of God so He loves us. During the lent season we prepare ourselves to do the will of God. Spending our life meaningfully,
let us build our life on the word of God and lead our life worthy of His calling. May the Lord bless Our life abundantly in the coming days.
Rev. T.S. Jose
