Walking in a New Way

When the Lord says, “I am doing a new thing,” He turns this whole “Genesis 3” world upside down: makes a way in the desert, streams in the wasteland, wild animals are tamed—He even brings life out of death! All this He brings about through Jesus, His suffering servant. All this He does for the sake of a people He has claimed as His own, so that they would with their very lives proclaim His praise. A Steward’s Reflection: How does my life proclaim God’s praise? What “former things” do I need to let go of and leave behind? How will my life, by the power of His Spirit, declare His praise this week?

Scripture References: Isaiah 43:16-21

From Series: "Walking with Jesus"

This prayer from the Lutheran Book of Worship strikes a resonant chord with those who walk with Jesus: Lord God, you have called your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown. Give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. Walking with Jesus makes all of life an adventure, and the best part of it is that we get to walk with the One who is the Son of God. Stewardship Emphasis: As a part of our Lenten journey, we also consider in very practical ways how God has set us apart and called us to manage all of life for the sake of the Kingdom. It causes us to reflect: What am I experiencing as I walk with Jesus? And how is He leading me for the sake of the Kingdom of God?
