During Lent, we focus on the suffering of Jesus and the sacrifice he made for us – the ultimate sacrifice – but we should also keep our eyes on Easter. The Paschal Mystery is that there is suffering and death – but it’s always followed by new life! With that in mind, here’s your REAL Challenge for the week:
Think about something you’ve lost, then thank the Lord for the new thing that followed.
Remember this: So whoever is in Christ is a new creation: the old things have passed away; behold, new things have come. ~2 Corinthians 5:17
Just like Lent, suffering won’t last forever and the new life of Easter is coming soon!
