In the Gospel for Tuesday of the Fifth Week of Lent, Jesus challenges his listeners to accept him as the Savior.  “I belong to what is above.  You belong to this world, but I do not belong to this world.  That is why I told you that you will die in your sins.  For if you do not believe that I AM, you will die in your sins” (John 8: 23b-24).  Jesus the Risen Lord has repaired our relationship with God.  He gives us the way to live in this relationship of love.  In love with God through Jesus, we love ourselves and others.  When we love as God loves, we avoid sin.  We live for God when we care for those difficult to love, visit the lonely, attend to the sick, feed the hungry, pray for peace, and more.  How do you live for God?
