Have you ever felt stuck? Even though a lot of things changed in 2020, many of us have felt stuck dealing with the COVID restrictions and other changes. Our congregation’s theme verse for 2021 is Exodus 14:15, “The Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to me? Tell the people of Israel to go forward.”. The year 2021 is the year for us to move forward.
The people of Israel had been brought out of slavery by many miracles and now they were stuck. They were stuck with the Red Sea behind them and the charging Egyptian army in front of them coming to take them back into slavery. Of course, God did more than just tell them to move forward, He blocked the advancing army, parted the Red Sea and dried the ground so the people would not get stuck in the mud. Likewise God does not leave us stuck in our sin and our old habits and ways of dealing with the world. He came in the person of Jesus (the Christmas arrival) lived a perfect life for us (the Epiphany season miracles) and then gave His life in our place (the Lent events). All so we could have a new and better life with Him (announced at Easter) and not be stuck anymore. God gives us His Word and with it His Holy Spirit to get us unstuck and moving forward to a new life.
February 17th is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. We will have a series of midweek worship services at 7:00 PM each Wednesday (in person and on line) called “The Places of the Passion”. We will focus mainly on Matthew 26-27 and travel with Jesus to the different places He stopped as He gave His life in your place. He offers each of us forgiveness and new life so we can get unstuck from the old way of life. Lent is really a preparation for Easter and the new eternal Life Jesus has for each of us. We travel through Lent to arrive at Easter. Begin moving forward by traveling with Jesus and being recommitted to Him. Make plans to be part of our Lenten worship series beginning Feb 17th.
As you focus on God in this (still!) new year of 2021, keep your eyes and ears open to learn how He is inviting you to move forward in 2021.
