Old Testament Lesson

Genesis 8:6-22

We see that after days and days of raining and flooding, it finally stopped. It must have felt like to Moses they would never see dry land. It would have been very easy to give up. To stop trying. To give up hope. To give up the willingness to keep going. But, he kept on. Because he knew that no matter how great his fear, God was bigger.

Whatever it is you fear, that you worry about, that steals you joy, remember. God is bigger.

New Testament Lesson

Hebrews 4:14-5:6

We have a God, through Jesus, that understands our weakness. We have a God, that through Jesus, understands our pain, our suffering, our temptations. We don't cry our in vain, we cry out to a God that hears. So, in the midst of our lives, remember, God hears, God loves, and God cares.

Gospel Lesson

John 2:23-3:15

Jesus calls us to new life. To new birth. To new living. This is a new day; a day God has given to us. May we claim this new life He has for us, this new birth. Today is the day He's given us. May we live for His, and may we live in the power of His new life
