Lessons and Hymns for Lent 3 C

These are the Scripture readings you will hear this coming Sunday:

Ezekiel 33:7-20
1 Corinthians 10:1-13
Luke 13:1-9

Jesus Calls You to Repentance

“Unless you repent, you will all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3, 5). By this warning, the Lord would turn us away from wickedness and bring us to life in Himself. For He is patient with us, that we not be cut down in our sin but live and bear fruit in Him. As He lives, the Lord has “no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live” (Ezek. 33:11). So the Scriptures have been “written down for our instruction, on whom the end of the ages has come” (1 Cor. 10:11), that we should not desire evil but trust in Christ. He alone is faithful, the Rock who feeds us with His “spiritual food” and pours out His “spiritual drink” (1 Cor. 10:3–4).

These are the hymns we will sing:

In the Cross of Christ I Glory (LSB 427)
May God Bestow on Us His Grace (LSB 823)
Rock of Ages (LSB 761)
Great is Thy Faithfulness (LSB 809)
Go, My Children, with My Blessing (LSB 922)
