Read: Philippians 1:12-20
Lent invites us to go inward and become more contemplative. This is an important part of the Lenten journey, but Jesus did not die to keep it a secret. His death and resurrection are meant to be the good news proclaimed from the housetops. Apostle Paul found courage to boldly proclaim Christ–despite imprisonment and threats of death. He even discovered how God used the negative experiences of his life to proclaim Christ.

Ponder: What does it mean for you to proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed?
Pray: Gracious God, we thank you for the good news of Christ Jesus. use our lives to boldly proclaim your good news made known in Christ. Use our words and our actions to reflect the goodness of your love. In the name of Christ, we pray. Amen.
