Our readings today point us in the direction of God’s covenants with Abraham. And we are reminded that we are true children of Abraham when we have a living faith in Jesus Christ. (Please forgive my voice, as I am recovering from the flu in this recording.)
The lectionary inspires us Lenten penitents with the story of Abraham, the spiritual ancestor of those who learn to relate to God by faith instead of imperfect human obedience or heredity.
Continuing through Galatians (extended chapter here) from our readings, we find St Paul laying the groundwork for salvation to the promise given to Abraham. As you reflect, I invite you to rejoice that all people are invited to become children of Abraham through faith in Christ!
