Agape: The 2020 Lenten Devotional for St. Paul's Episcopal Church

“…and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God,[a] who loved me and gave himself for me.” -Galatians 2:20

Absolutely! I have felt God’s love profoundly over the past three years when several Christian friends have committed to checking on me every night (yes, every night) to make sure I climbed out of the tub safely. They wait for my text message at a certain time; if I don’t text, they try to text me; if they can’t reach me by text, someone from the group comes to my house & comes in to make sure I am OK. Thanks to Vicki, Helen, Arlene, & Cathey for showing Christ’s love.

Dear God, I profoundly thank you for your love expressed to me in the Christian friends who love me enough to make sure I am safe. Amen.
