Daily Reflection (2-17-19): “Through him we have received the grace of apostleship, to bring about the obedience of faith, for the sake of his name, among whom you are also, who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.” [Romans 1:5-6] Our loving God, in His great grace and mercy, sacrificed His Son, Jesus Christ, for our sins. Discipleship is our response, in gratitude, to our great God. We extend God’s grace and mercy through our ministry and mission: we reach out to those who are away from the Church and Jesus. This outreach is a first step in fulfilling the Great Commission that Jesus entrusted to us, to go out and make disciples. The first step is the invitation, which we call Invest and Invite. We have an amazing Lenten Message series, beginning March 10th called “Attitude Adjustment.” Who might be waiting for your invitation? Loving Lord, help me be an instrument of Your grace and mercy. Lead me to those who need to return to You.
On the weekend of March 9th and 10th we will begin our Lenten Message Series entitled Attitude Adjustment. It has been said that the greatest Christian virtue is humility. As important as humility is, it is often misunderstood. Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it is thinking of yourself less. Humility is not practiced because we are unaware of the benefits – specifically that he who humbles himself will be exalted. In this series, we will clear up some of the misconceptions about humility and discuss why it is so beneficial.BOTTOM LINE OF THE SERIES: Adjust your attitude towards humility this Lent
During this Lenten Message Series we will hear the message during the homily at Mass and continue to explore the message in our Small Groups. If you have been thinking about joining or starting a small group, this is the perfect time to do so. You will begin the season of Lent enriching your faith life and growing in community with others from the parish. CLICK HERE to get more information about small groups here at Ascension. You can also sign up after Mass at the Information Booth in the Family Center.
