Journey to the Cross
a Lent series
SHIFT YOUR FOCUS
March 22, 2020 • Ps. Jorge Romero
The aching bellies were filled with bread and fish, but it didn’t take long before those bellies began to rumble again. Hungry people heard of the miracle, and they began to seek out Jesus to see if the miracle he performed once would happen again—to see if they could be part of the next one. Only, when they came to Jesus, he admonished them about looking for temporary fulfillment; about looking to have their stomachs’ filled for a moment when what he was offering was so much more than that.
RESURRECTION POWER, NOW
March 15, 2020 • Ps. Jorge Romero
We are constantly reminded of death, even by the deep, dark colors that symbolize Lent and Holy Week. Death feels so pervasive it can be almost suffocating. We may know that feeling in our own lives or see it in the people around us. It can be easy to sink into hopelessness and despair in the midst of it all, to let the darkness overcome us. But there is a voice calling to us in the midst of that darkness.

At one time it was very popular to ask the question “What would Jesus do?” The question was posed to help people think through decisions. But the question for the baptized is not a question of behavior modification but identity transformation. Central Passage: Romans 6:1-14
