Introduction to the Readings - Lent 2 - 20110320

Gn 12:1-4a – PS 121 – Rom 4:1-5, 13-17 – John 3:1-17 Or Matt 17:1-9
Intro to the Readings
We hear from Genesis first today as Abram receives direction from the Lord. Also the promise of blessing, and that “all the families of the earth shall be blessed” through Abram.
Psalm 121 is familiar to most of us – it is a Psalm of trust.
From Romans we listen to the Apostle write about Abraham’s faith – that Abraham believed in God, and God made Abraham righteous.
In Saint John’s Gospel we listen to Nicodemus and the Lord Jesus. As Nicodemus struggles to come to faith.
Listen to the message of salvation, and come to faith and righteousness.
