Lectionary Readings for Sunday 15 Mar 2015
4th Sunday in Lent - Violet
Psalm 107: 1-3, 17-22 A Psalm of thanksgiving for the healing
powers of God
Numbers 21:4-9 Despite the Lord having provided them with ‘manna from
heaven’ in the desert, the Israelites rebel against Moses’ leadership and against
God. They repent, following a plague of poisonous snakes, and in answer to
Moses’ prayers the Lord provides the means for their healing.
Ephesians 2:1-10 The writer to the church at Ephesus asserts that we were
once all ‘dead through sin’. In his mercy God has now made salvation accessible
to those who have faith in Christ. He emphasises that faith itself is a ‘freely
given gift from God’, not dependent upon good works.
John 3:14-21 Early in his ministry Jesus teaches Nicodemus, a councillor of the
Pharisees, about the kingdom of God. He declares that the Son of Man must be
lifted up, as Moses ‘lifted up the serpent in the wilderness’, so that all who
believe in him may share in a lasting and spiritual enlightenment.
