March 20, 2022 – 3rd Sunday in Lent
Rev. Denise Clark-Jones


In our reading from Isaiah, the prophet poses the question: “Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy?” Or, to put it another way: “Why do we settle for the scarcity of sin when we could partake of the abundance God’s righteousness offers us?” The psalmist expresses a desperate longing and thirst for God. Paul reminds the congregation of the Corinthian church of their spiritual connection to Israel’s exodus from Egypt and warns that they should not succumb to the same temptations of their ancestors in the wilderness. Our reading from Luke’s Gospel tells of Jesus calling those who are following him to an honest recognition of their sins and to repentance. Jesus’ parable of the fig tree serves as a reminder of God’s patient grace and that we are called to lives that bear fruit.

Almighty God, you know that we have no power in ourselves to help ourselves:
Keep us both outwardly in our bodies and inwardly in our souls,
that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body,
and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
