Be on Fire for Christ

3rd Sunday Lent

Most remarkable sight

Burning bush
God on fire for us
God burns for us / our love
From the beginning thru OT, to Christ to end
Always giving 2nd (and 3rd etc) chances

2nd reading
Some didn’t burn for God
Were on fire for other things / evil
God made examples of them

Is your bush (soul, heart) burning for God?

“Oh yeah, of course on fire and fruitful”
2nd reading!

Gospel- is your tree bearing fruit for God?
Are you merely exhausting the soil?God gives another chance (like OT)
3 years – fig trees maturity
Us / Lent – this year!

Cultivate our ground (soul) and fertilize it (with Grace, esp Eucharist)

Be on fire for Christ!
