Lent 3 – Deep in the changing sky – called to deep wisdom

March 7, 2021

Summary

In the patterns and glory of God’s creation, and in God’s commandments and promises, we are called to obtain deep wisdom. God’s wisdom undermines our assumptions and takes us deeper than our efforts can lead us.

The cross is at the center of what we believe. It is a deep way of understanding power and wisdom. It represents the raw powerlessness that Jesus demonstrated when he suffered the worst kind of death but it could not keep him there when he arose to a new life. Wisdom is found in suffering love and it just doesn’t make sense. God doesn’t give answers but provides Jesus as the answer.

We learn to live into deep wisdom as we live onto the way of Jesus and the cross.
