Roses and Thorns

February 14, 2024: Valentine’s Day and Ash Wednesday – roses and thorns… a very unique intersection of the ways that love is demonstrated.
The soft, beautiful petals of the roses are given to express love to another person; the thorns of the crown of Jesus remind us of the suffering and death that Christ endured as He expressed His great love for the world.
Our LeadaChild mission exists to share the love of Jesus with children through Christian education. We pray that the children will experience God’s love through those who provide a quality education at our project sites…. more importantly, we pray that they learn of God’s amazing love as Jesus poured out HIs life for them and rose victorious over sin, death, and the devil.
As we begin this passion season of Lent, remember God’s great love for you… and join us in our efforts to share that love with children all around the world.
But God demonstrates His own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us
Romans 5:8
