Focus on being restored in Christ - Lenten Devotional 2018 - Fourth Sunday in Lent, March 11

Focus on being restored in Christ
Fourth Sunday in Lent, March 11
Mark 3:1-6 (NRSV)

The Man with a Withered Hand
Again he entered the synagogue, and a man was there who had a withered hand. They watched him to see whether he would cure him on the sabbath, so that they might accuse him. And he said to the man who had the withered hand, "Come forward." Then he said to them, "Is it lawful to do good or to do harm on the sabbath, to save life or to kill?" But they were silent. He looked around at them with anger; he was grieved at their hardness of heart and said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He stretched it out, and his hand was restored. The Pharisees went out and immediately conspired with the Herodians against him, how to destroy him.

This week, focus on being restored in Christ.

Listed below are some suggestions of practices to help you focus.
Focus through...

Photography - Take a picture of something that reminds you of restoration. Use it to bless others by sharing it on social media using the hashtag, #rpclent
Music - Listen to or sing a song that gives you a sense of restoration.
Writing - Write a letter as a prayer to God. Ask God to restore you in mind, body, and spirit.
