You’re God’s Own Why —- The Half-Time of Lent, part 4 of 4.

March 30, 2019

Two quick excerpts from that TEDx talk of Simon Sinek’s that we’ve spent some time with this week —

People don’t buy what you do; they buy why you do it. If you talk about what you believe, you will attract those who believe what you believe.

And it’s those who start with “why” that have the ability to inspire those around them or find others who inspire them.

— Let’s go back to where we started all of this Simon Says stuff, back on Wednesday —

“Why do you look for the living among the dead?
He is not here; he has risen!
Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee:
‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners,
be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ”
Luke 24:5-7

— There’s an old song that’s about “looking for love in all the wrong places.”

Have we been looking for signs of God’s love “in all the wrong places” this week?

To quote Simon Sinek, “Why?”

We’re on this side of Easter!

Yes, it’s still Lent.

Yes, tomorrow’s The Fourth Sunday of Lent. It’s also supposed to be a “little Easter” with all the celebration aspects that come with the realities of Resurrection Sundays.

And yes, the Resurrected Christ sends us out to be, by the grace of God and the power of the Holy Spirit, the best-ever illustrations of God’s own Why.

Ready?
