Because He Knew:
A Worship Series at Reformation for the Season of Lent
Why did Jesus keep moving toward the cross? Was it an accident that Jesus was crucified – a tremendous tragedy and colossal miscarriage of justice? Surely he should have known this was coming. Surely he could have avoided the pain, the suffering, the death. But that’s the point, Jesus knew all along that he was going to die. That was the eternal plan of the Father, that the holy Son of God would suffer and die for a world of sinners. However, Jesus also knew that death would not be the end. The payment for sin would be accepted and he would rise to life again and defeat death itself – for us. Join Jesus this Lenten season as he resolutely walks toward the cross, because he knew he was going to die. The Gospel lessons that we will hear over the coming weeks of Lent are all connected by this one fascinating revelation – Jesus knew all along that he was going to die, and that impacted everything he did, for our salvation. Join Jesus this Lenten season as he resolutely walks toward the cross, because not only did he know he was going to die, he also knew he was going to live. And now, through faith in him, so do you!

Jesus Christ Is Our Great High Priest –
Lent 2018 at Reformation
Why do we observe the season of the church year called “Lent”? Lent is a special period of 40 days during which God’s people cleanse their hearts through repentance. Lent is a time during which God’s people prepare to celebrate the festival of Easter with joy. Lent is a time during which God renews his people’s zeal as we reflect on the depth of Christ’s love for us in willingly suffering and dying to redeem us from sin’s curse.
The letter to the Hebrews calls Jesus our "great high priest." This Lenten season, explore this powerful name of Jesus Christ. Rediscover the perfect life of compassion, service, and sacrifice that Jesus lived for us. See that Christ serving as our Great High Priest is assurance of our redemption through him alone; see that Christ serving as our Great High Priest is motivation for humble works in his name. This year we will be blessed as we see that Jesus Christ Is Our Great High Priest.
Join us at Reformation each Wednesday this Lent as we expound and apply these important words to our lives today. We will also have soup suppers beforehand in the gym, beginning at 5:30pm. For more information, visit www.refsd.org or find us on Facebook www.Facebook.com/ReformationSanDiego
