In through the out door

From Morning Prayer today (Shrove Tuesday),

"He brought us out from there in order to bring us in..." Deuteronomy 6:23

God brings his people out from slavery to the world, the flesh and the devil and into new citizenship in his kingdom.

Let us pray for all Christians, everywhere, as they make the Lenten journey from whatever enslaves them to the incredible freedom announced by Christ's empty tomb.

"Save your people and bless your inheritance; shepherd them and carry them for ever." Psalm 28:11

"It was fitting that God, for whom and through whom all things exist, in bringing many children to glory, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through sufferings." Hebrews 2:10
