Living the Way – Lenten Reflection (26)

Scripture for Today: 1 Corinthians 13, Galatians 5, Colossians 3

Today’s readings include sets of instructions about how the earliest followers of Jesus are to live as people of “the Way.”

The passage reminded me of a video that I love by Dave Tomlinson that was produced by The Work of The People. Dave offers the modern-day followers of Jesus a similar message to that of Paul’s. His words about what it looks like to walk “the Way” today inspire me to more boldly pursue a life of love. I hope they do the same for you.

For the sake of transparency, I am away this week celebrating my  loving partner’s birthday. I was able to write three out of four reflections before we left. I hope you’ll join me in celebrating Darrell (a man who clothes himself in love daily) and forgive me for this shorter entry.

With Love,
Natalie

Prayer: Reveal your way to us today.

Reflection: Who in my life embodies “the Way”? What is it about them and their way of being that I find so compelling?

Following my preceding blog posts, I will explore the stories that align with the claims of the Epistles, the letters written to help form the ideas and behaviors of the people of the Way. […]
