Friday of Lent 3

Jesus, Lead Thou On – Lutheran Service Book #718
Luke 12:32; 1 Peter 2:20b-21; 1 Corinthians 10:13; James 1:12

Jesus Lead thou on till our rest is won;
And although the way be cheerless,
We will follow calm and fearless,
Guide us by Thy hand
To our father-land.

Life sometimes is not fair. Sometimes the deck is stacked against you. Sometimes easy breaks don’t come your way. Yet your Lord knows all too well your needs. He has the sufficiency to supply them. He looks beyond the circumstances of your life to offer the peace no one else can offer.

God of love, through Your Son You have commanded us to love one another. By the guidance of Your Word and Spirit, deliver us from impenitence and teach us the truth that we might confess our sin, receive Your forgiveness, and be reconciled to one another; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. [1]
