The Fifth Sunday in Lent 2015

The Fifth Sunday in Lent

While Sundays are not a part of the 40 days, they are an important part of our Lenten discipline.  

Today we hear the Gospel from St. John:  23 Jesus answered them, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. 24 Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. 25 Those who love their life lose it, and those who hate their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26 Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honor.

What does it mean to follow Jesus?  Does he really mean hate?   What happens when a seed is sown (buried) into the earth?  What are the signs of growth in your life?

A prayer:  "Dear Lord, help me to follow.  Amen"
