The Power of the Cross: Second Week of Lent, Thursday - The Cross of Christ Unites Those Who Suffer for Justice

Ask — What does God ask me to do for those who suffer?

Seek — Look for opportunities to help someone who needs it (and who cannot help you back). Stand up for someone who is being brought low.

Knock — Meditate on Romans 8:18. As members of the body of Christ, if one member suffers the entire body suffers. How can you make that suffering redemptive?

Transform Your Life — Read the accounts of the martyrs, those who gave the supreme witness to the gospel with their lives. Many monastic communities read about the lives of the martyrs every day, to inspire those seeking to grow in the Christian life.
