Fourth Sunday in Lent
THEME: GOD OF JUDGEMENT, IN MERCY, SOFTEN OUR HEARTS WITH THE WARMTH OF YOUR LOVE
God of judgement, you reach out to us in mercy even when we rebel: soften our hearts with the warmth of your love, that we will know your Son alive in us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Reading: Ephesians 2: 1-10

Commission and Blessing:
Go now, in the confidence of God’s wonderful works for humanity
Of Jesus’ readiness to be lifted up on the cross for our salvation
And of the Holy Spirit who assures us of the rich mercy and love of God.
The blessing of God almighty, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, be among us, and remain with us always. Amen
Go in peace to love and serve the Lord. In the name of Christ. Amen
