Emphasis Preaching Journal

It is the second week into the Lenten season. Fat Tuesday’s paczkis and beer celebrations are far into the rearview mirror now. Some grocery stores are already putting Easter candy onto their shelves in hopes of early sales before the actual holiday. However, Lent is the season to exercise our faith muscles. We never know when we will need them. A health, financial or natural weather disaster crisis can occur at any time of the year. Each of today’s texts is an exercise in stretching our faith muscles. Abraham is being called into a new covenant after the one made with Noah (Genesis 8-10).

Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16
Abram despairs because God’s promises have been so long delayed, he doubts they will come true. God’s response is not only to repeat the promise, but to give Abram and Sarai very slight name changes, to Abraham and Sarah. This slight alteration changes their perspective. God’s promises do come true.

StoryShare

John E. Sumwalt
For the promise that he would inherit the world did not come to Abraham or to his descendants through the law but through the righteousness of faith… For this reason it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his descendants… (vv. 13, 16a)

We live by faith! Faith, as the author of Hebrews says, is “The assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”

Object: One piece of clear glass and one mirror. I found a piece of clear Plexiglas and a plastic mirror at a local box store. Both pieces were one square foot, which is a good size to use in this message.

The Village Shepherd

Janice B. Scott
Call to Worship:

Jesus said, "If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me." In our worship today let us explore what it means to take up our cross and follow him.


Invitation to Confession:

Jesus, like Peter, we don't always understand what we should do.
Lord, have mercy.

Jesus, we often try to avoid any suffering.
Christ, have mercy.

(See Good Friday, Cycle A; Good Friday, Cycle B; and Proper 23/Pentecost 21/Ordinary Time 28, Cycle C, for alternative approaches.)

We will meet Psalm 22 in its entirety on Good Friday, but here the lectionary designates just verses 23-31. The lectionary psalms generally illuminate the week's First Lesson, which in this case is about the covenant initiated by God with Abraham and Sarah in Genesis 17. The nine verses from this psalm, while not inappropriate, nonetheless leave us looking for an obvious connection with the First Lesson.

Mark J. Molldrem
A friend related to me how, when he was a youngster, he spent a lot of time on the other side of the block all wrapped up in touch football and whiffle ball and hide-and-go-seek. But there were other important events going on for which his folks knew he needed to be present, like going to church, mealtime, bedtime. So, they blew a whistle to call him home from the other side of the block.
Donna E. Schaper
Some gardeners can grow everything and others cannot. Sweet peas are a particularly difficult plant for some. They sprout two little leafs and a withered string of a hand reaching up. Then they stop growing. Something underneath is wrong. In the soil. Down deep. They don't want to live.

People who have trouble with sweet peas try over and over to grow them. They load the soil with enough chicken manure to fertilize five gardens, much less the five square feet where they'd like to see light pink and purple and sweet.
Paul W. Kummer
What names did people call you as you were growing up? What nicknames did your parents or grandparents saddle you with? I hope most of the names were endearing. But were others nasty or hurtful? Were you given a nickname because of how you looked or how you talked? Because of where you lived or what you wore?

Did anyone ever give you a name because they felt they knew what your future would hold? If so, did that spur you on in your destiny or did it hold you back and discourage you? Did they nickname you in honor of what they believed you would become? I hope so!
