Scripture: Luke 21:20
Every kitchen and hotel room in the United States has one thing in common, a coffee pot.
Not all the same, but the pots all make that first cup of coffee most people think they need to start their day.
As I enjoyed my cup of coffee this morning, I thought about the cup of Salvation, given to every one of us who believe in the risen Savior, Jesus the Christ.
We tend to take that cup of coffee for granted; it will be there wherever we are, but how often do we think about that cup of Salvation that is also there no matter where we are?
During this season of Lent, let us remember that Jesus prepared that cup for each of us with his shed blood, providing deliverance from guilt and the power of sin for us.
As we enjoy that first cup of coffee, let us remember the grace and mercy given freely to each of us but paid in full by Jesus our Lord to all who believe.
Help us to remember every day the sacrifice you made for us and the wonderful gift of the cup of Salvation you provided for each of us. Amen.

A daily Lenten devotional reprinted with permission from The Society of St. Andrew to inspire help sharing nourishing food with neighbors in need.
Every $1 donated provides more than 40 servings to those in greatest need. A donation of $47 for the 47 days in Lent provides more than 1,880 servings.
What a way to celebrate the resurrection of hope and lift the cup of salvation for our hungry neighbors!
