Focus on your faith
Fifth Sunday in Lent, March 18
2 Peter 1:1-7 (NRSV)
Simeon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ,
To those who have received a faith as precious as ours through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ;
May grace and peace be yours in abundance in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
The Christian's Call and Election
His divine power has given us everything needed for life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Thus he has given us, through these things, his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of lust, and may become participants of the divine nature. For this very reason, you must make every effort to support your faith with goodness, and goodness with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with endurance, and endurance with godliness, and godliness with mutual affection, and mutual affection with love.
This week, focus on supporting your faith with goodness, knowledge, self-control, endurance, godliness, mutual affection, and love.
Listed below are some suggestions of practices to help you focus.
Photography - Take a picture of something that reminds you of faithfulness. Use it to bless others by sharing it on social media using the hashtag, #rpclent
Music - Listen to or sing a song that supports your faith.
Writing - Write a letter as a prayer to God. Ask God to help you put your faith into action.
