Theme for Lent: “The Blessing of New Beginnings”
For the next five weeks of our Lenten Study, we will study the lives of five individuals who had a new beginning after their encounter with Jesus.
1) The Samaritan Woman (John 4:1-42), who was living without hope.
2) The man at the pool (John 5:1-16), who was living with excuses.
3) Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10), who was living a life of dishonesty.
4) The woman with the issue of blood (Mark 5: 25-35), who was living with a serious illness.
5) Saul/Paul (Acts 9:1-22), who was living a life of hatred.
Each of these individuals had a new beginning after their personal encounter with Jesus. We can also have a “new beginning” with the renewal of our hearts and minds.
