Focus on God's Faithfulness - Lenten Devotional 2018 - Saturday, February 24

Lectionary

Mark 8:27-30 (NRSV)
Peter's Declaration about Jesus
Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi; and on the way he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that I am?" And they answered him, "John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets." He asked them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter answered him, "You are the Messiah." And he sternly ordered them not to tell anyone about him.

Reflection:

  • If someone was to ask you who is Jesus, what would you say?
  • Is there someone who you need to tell this to in your life?

Prayer:
Holy God, You are surely the Messiah, the anointed one of God. I praise You that I know this and believe this. Help me to share this good news today. Amen.


The purpose of the season of Lent is to intentionally take time to reflect on Jesus' life and journey to the cross. The Lenten devotional is a tool to help people reflect on this journey.

The theme for this year's devotional is FOCUS. So much of our lives we end up focusing on the wrong things. We focus on our jobs, families, bodies, friends, self, and tons of other things. How might our perspective on all things in our lives change if we focused more on our faith?

You will find some days where you are encouraged to read Scripture and reflect. This comes from our Lectionary which divides the Bible into reading segments over a course of three years.
