In this reflection for the Second Sunday of Lent 2022, Kristen Fisher reminds us that we are just passing through this world on our journey toward our true home: in Heaven with the Lord.
In the gospel reading, Jesus shows us a little window where we can see and feel and experience just how good God is, and how amazing our new home our heavenly home will be. And Paul tells us in the second reading that our citizenship is in heaven. We are citizens of heaven. And that means that heaven is our true home, between now and then, is just a journey.
So this Lent let’s keep journeying. Let’s not grow weary or discouraged even with all the big ups and downs and twists and turns, all the things that are terrifying, all the things that we were not expecting. Let’s be confident that God is leading us ever closer to our home.
