Serving Our Community And World In Christ's Name

Daily Devotional

Sunday March 24, 2019 3rd Sunday of Lent
Luke 13:4-5 (NRSV) "Or those eighteen who were killed when the tower of Siloam fell on them–do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others living in Jerusalem? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish just as they did."

Jesus addressed the tragedies in the community by breaking the people's assumption that bad things only happen to bad people. He pointed out that we all are sinners and the most important thing we can do is make immediate course corrections in our lives and turn back to following and loving God. Because accidents and tragedies can happen at any moment it is essential that we seek God's ways in this moment, the only moment we truly live in! 

What question do you ask in the face of tragedy? Today will you hear Jesus and make positive changes in your life turning you back to God?

May this third Sunday of Lent be a day when you assess your life and choose the ways of God to be your ways too!
Pastor Scott Tyler

[There is speculation that the tower of Siloam that fell was part of an aqueduct being built into Jerusalem. This section of aquaduct is in Caesarea.]
