March brings about hope for spring. The winter is ending and new life begins. Let us take this time to also reflect on the hope from Jesus, the ending of His life and new beginnings for ours. God gave the ultimate gift of the sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ. Let us take this month to focus on sacrifice, hope, and new beginnings.
Luke 23:26 As the soldiers led him away, they seized Simon from Cyrene, who was on his way in from the country, and put the cross on him and made him carry it behind Jesus. 27 A large number of people followed him, including women who mourned and wailed for him. 28 Jesus turned and said to them, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children. 29 For the time will come when you will say, ‘Blessed are the childless women, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!’ 30 Then “ ‘they will say to the mountains, “Fall on us!” and to the hills, “Cover us!” ’ 31 For if people do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?”
