Journey with us as we walk through the final days of Jesus’ life on earth and reflect on the spiritual disciplines associated with the season of Lent. As a tool for your walk, Christ Community has assembled a daily Lenten Devotional booklet you can pick up at church today. Our hope is that we will humble ourselves like Jesus and come to know and experience the King’s triumph.

Title: Love Who Jesus Loves
Scripture: Matthew 25:31-46
Speaker: Bill Gorman,

>> How do you know you love Jesus? You love his family.
>> Judgment is coming.
A rescued heart is a compassionate heart.
A calloused heart is a doomed heart.
"For many years I looked at life like a case at law. It was a series of proofs. When you're young you prove how brave you are, or smart; then, what a good lover; then, a good father; finally, how wise, or powerful or [whatever.] And we all do that, right?

But underlying it all, I see now, there was a presumption. That one moved . . . on an upward path toward some elevation, where . . . God knows that . . . I would be justified, or even condemned. A verdict anyway. I think now that my disaster really began when I looked up one day . . . and the bench was empty. No judge in sight. And all that remained was the endless argument with oneself, this pointless litigation of existence before an empty bench. . . Which, of course, is another way of saying - despair."
— Arthur Miller, After the Fall
"[If] God were not angry at injustice and deception and did not make the final end to violence God would not be worthy of our worship….[In] a world of violence we are faced with an inescapable alternative: either God’s violence or human violence….My thesis that the practice of non-violence requires a belief in divine vengeance will be unpopular with many…in the West….[But] it takes the quiet of a suburban home for the birth of the thesis that human non-violence…[results from the belief in] God’s refusal to judge."
— Miroslav Volf, Exclusion and Embrace
>> Will we love who Jesus loves?
