Our Redeemer Reminds Us to Repent (Luke 13:1-9)
Third Sunday of Lent, March 24, 2019
Our Lord Jesus has already demonstrated the great love of God to us in every possible way.
It is our Redeemer who reminds us to repent, the one who went to the cross for our sins.
Our repentance is not a burden or an obligation to be met. It is painful, yes, to admit our sinfulness, but it is a joy to know that our sin has been paid for in full.
So, whenever we see tragedy or suffering, we can be thankful that God has been patient with us. We can be reminded of our own sinfulness, and we can rejoice in our loving Savior.
