Lent 2: Gospel Love

March 14, 2017

Rev. Michele Ward preaches the second week of Lent on “Gospel Love” in John 3:1-17. Nicodemus comes to Jesus seeking answers to questions. Instead of answering the question he wants answered, Jesus invites Nicodemus to see and to enter the kingdom. The kingdom is here, in our very midst, in the thin places where heaven and earth meet. Jesus came to save the world, and not to bring condemnation. As we accept the invitation into the thin places of our lives, God waits for us there, ready with love that is big enough for the whole world.
