The Fifth Sunday of Lent

“And I know it aches And your heart it breaks
And you can only take so much, walk on, walk on” – U2

Out Church service this morning was designated “Walk with Jesus” Sunday. It was an instructional Eucharist which, if you have never sat through on before, I highly recommend. Sometimes the service at church becomes old hat. The instruction really reminds the importance of every part the service.

The choir sang three great versions of the song “I want Jesus to Walk with me.” The songs are just a repetition of those words over and over again in rising chorus. Rather than a sermon today, Father Jay merely asked that we listen to the anthem and meditate upon the words. So I will due the same.

After the service I asked Jake if he listened to the words of the music. “Why do we want Jesus to walk with us?” I asked him.
Jake responded, “If Jesus walks with you and holds your hand when you are going somewhere, you won’t get lost because Jesus knows where everything is.”

He is exactly right. I want Jesus to walk with me, because with him, I will never get lost.
