The Power of the Cross: Third Week of Lent, Wednesday - The Cross of Christ Transforms Law and Love

Ask — How much do I love God?

Seek — God's love for us and his plans for us are greater than our minds can conceive. Starting today, acknowledge these realities by undertaking acts of trust in God throughout the day. Ask God to fill you with his love. Share God's love with everyone.

Knock — Meditate on Romans 13:8-10. Think about the love you owe to others. Jesus often present the kingdom of God in terms of parables that speak of a king leaving his servants with talents to share with others. Are you giving of yourself in a way that builds up the kingdom of God?

Transform Your Life — Imitate Christ or one of your favorite saints as you go about your daily activities. Plead with God to enable you to show charity to all you meet. Listen intently to those who speak to you, asking yourself what God might be saying to you through them. Give them, including yourself and God, the benefit of the doubt.
