5th Sunday in Lent Year C

Isaiah 43:16-21
“Trust in God brings the past alive, gives the present meaning, and the future hope.”
Question: Do we really want our faith to be so mundane as to be entirely predictable? Or do we want our God to do surprising things, things that we couldn’t even begin to imagine, things that ‘no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the human heart conceived’ (1 Cor. 2:9)?”

Philippians 3:4b-14
Without throwing away his own religion Paul, nevertheless, throws away a theology which had made him important and given him great status. In its place he embraces Christ and Christ’s way.
Question: What does it mean to know Christ? What social holiness will come from your knowing the power of Christ’s resurrection?

John 12:1-18
It seems Martha was a person of some figure, from the great respect which was paid to her and her sister, in visits and condolences on Lazarus’s death, as well as from the costly ointment mentioned in the next verse. And probably it was at their house our Lord and his disciples lodged, when he returned from Jerusalem to Bethany, every evening of the last week of his life, upon which he was now entered.
Question: Have you ever seen or experienced someone physically caring for a loved one in preparation for that dying person’s death?
