Devotion for Maundy Thursday

Holy Thursday

March 29, 2018

Exodus 12:1-4, 11-14; Psalm 116:1-4, 12-19; I Corinthians 11:23-26;

John 13:1-17, 31b-35

I love the Lord, for he heard my voice, he heard my cry for mercy.
 Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live. 

Psalm 116:1-2

Remember. . .

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Lent is the Bible story of Jesus fasting in the desert for 40 days, and other stories. He was tempted and said no.  He was obedient to God.

Fasting is giving up something.  I know some people who give something up for the 40 days of Lent.   Fasting by itself means nothing.  Fasting should bring you closer to God.  But, why not do something new, not give something up?  Do something in remembrance of God to bring you closer to God.  Do something that you might not usually do, like helping in a mission project.

Become closer to God and remember.

 

Prayer :  Loving God, help me be closer to you.  Amen.
