This Second Sunday of Lent, two texts will guide our worship. The first featuring Abram and Sarai in Genesis Chapter 12. At the end of Genesis 11, all things pointed to death for this couple, and then in chapter 12 all things point towards life. In chapter 11 they were without direction. At the beginning of Chapter 12 they were called to new adventure. The rest of their lives would be spent seeking the God who first called them. In the gospel lesson, Nicodemus comes seeking Jesus in the cover of night. Both men are Rabbi’s, and Nicodemus is curious about Jesus’s teaching. The result is an invitation from Jesus to Nicodemus to be born again. In both texts God casts an invitation for new life. In Lent, in all times really, God casts an invitation to all for new life. Are you curious? May our worship be a time of seeking God’s newness, to begin again.
