Lenten Reflection Day 22: Matthew 5:17

Listen to the audio version here: https://anchor.fm/simplediakonia/episodes/Lenten-Reflection-Day-22-Matthew-517-es6fii

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill.” (Matthew 5:17)


Lent is a reminder that Jesus died for us to fulfill God’s promises of salvation spoken through the prophets. The Lenten observance opens the door to the beauty of the law witnessed in the life of our Savior: to love God and neighbor.

Today’s Intention

Through our baptismal waters, Lord Jesus, we share your office of prophet. We ask that through God’s grace, may the Holy Spirit descend upon us to prophesy and fulfill your laws, especially during our Lenten walk.

Peace and Goodness
