You’re identified by what you do: violinist, runner, foodie, Christian.
Today’s readings relate a manifestation of God’s love and care for us. If we allow His love into our hearts without doubt or fear, we will live fully. Jesus’ Resurrection is an assurance that God is always with us and true to His promise, He will not abandon us.
During trying moments God shows us His wonders through other people. Whether it be assistance in overcoming the pain of losing a loved one or providing a home-cooked meal to someone sick or undergoing surgery, we can identify Christians by the love they show others.
God reveals Himself through you! Come up with some ways you and your family can show your identity as Christians, especially throughout the Lenten season.
