Sermon, First Sunday in Lent, 2024

Christ endured the fasting and temptation in the wilderness out of love for us.  He endured torture and death out of love for us.  He rose and ascended to heaven where He sits at the right hand of God interceding in love for us.  But yet He also knew that the joy to be had when humanity and God are once again united in the world to come was worth all of the agony that He endured.  In our lives, we are blessed with sublime moments that allow us to glimpse God, that allow us a foreshadowing of that blessed joy that will one day be ours in its entirety.  Let us give thanks to God for these glimpses, and let them daily motivate us to a deeper love and service to God.
