Lent 2011: Responsibility and Role

What is our responsibility as Christians?

My commandment is this: Love each other as I have loved you. --John 15:12

What are some ways that God has shown His love for you? And how can we love one another in the same way?

Also, it is written in Mark 12:31 that one of the greatest commandments is to “love your neighbor as yourself.” Unfortunately, Sokha didn’t experience that love from her neighbors. How are some ways that we love ourselves? How can we show this love to others?

What is our responsibility as followers of Christ when it comes to matters of social injustice? Why should we care about things that are happening halfway across the world? Journal about how God has called us to love one another as you love yourself.

What is our role on this Earth?

You are the salt of the earth…You are the light of this world…Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your father in heaven. --Matthew 5:13-16

What actions can we take to right the wrongs that we have learned about? Did our perspectives change enough for us to care? Are we compelled to spread the word about AIDS? Why is it important for us to not only do something, but make it known to everyone around us?
