2nd Sunday of Lent

March 12, 2017

Genesis 12: 1 – 4

by *Fr. Peter Chidolue, SJ

During this second week of Lent, let us truthfully ask ourselves if we trust God enough? Are we willing to leave everything for God? Are we willing to follow God wherever He leads? God asked Abram to leave his homeland, his family and his father's house for a land that He will show him. Abram did. He left everything without knowing the land that God will direct him to or how far it will be. Do you trust God enough to act like Abram did? If you were Abram's wife or child would you agree to sell all you have and follow your 75 year old father to a land he claims God will show him? Can you trust God without asking for a sign.
Jesus trusted God completely without asking for a sign. Can we do the same?
May God help us to trust Him completely.

*Fr. Peter Chidolue, SJ, is a retreat minister who lives and works at St. Peter Claver House in Brafo Yaw, Cape Coast, Ghana.
