“’If you make my Word your home, you will indeed be my disciples; you will learn the truth and the truth will make you free,’” (John 8:31, NJB).

Daily Lent Reflection

Home is a wonderful place where we are welcomed for what we are and, whatever failings we may have, we can always go back home. The Word of Jesus offers that home for the disciples of Jesus Christ and by listening to the Word, Jesus promises that we will not only grow in love and understanding of God, but we will be changed, we will see ourselves and the world around us differently and be gradually freed from sin.

Daily Lent Challenge

Today I will be grateful for “home” whether that means a place or people to me.
