Predators can be defeated

8. Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.9 Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers[a] all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are.

I Peter 5:8-

Have you ever had a moment in life, when it seemed as if life seemed to go from bad to worse? During this Coronavirus pandemic, a recent discovery was reported of a giant hornet from Japan that has made its way to the United States. Known as the Murder Hornet, it relentlessly can destroy tens of thousands of honeybees. Bees are decapitated with a slice of its jaws. They are even known to sting through bee suits of humans. If that doesn’t make it fierce enough, the Murder hornet cannot be penetrated by the sting of its would-be prey.

Although it appears to be the end for the American honeybee, there’s something you should know. In Japan, the honeybees who are under attack by the hornet have made some amazing offensive adaptions. When faced with an attack from the hornet, the honeybees do something amazing. Documented studies show that the honeybees come together to completely engulf the hornet, by forming a ball around it. At the same time, the bees vibrate their bodies which creates a heat that the hornet cannot tolerate, yet the honeybees themselves are not affected. As a result of this counterattack, the bees literally cook the Hornet in defeat.

"Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted there by the devil. For forty days and forty nights he fasted and became very hungry."

Matthew 2-4:1 NLT

Lent or "Lencten" is defined as spring or "lengthening of days. This winter in New York has not been met with a lot of snow if any this winter. However, in a few weeks we will soon "spring" clocks ahead and begin longer days until November. Another word for Lent is the word "given".

Lent is seen as the 40 days Jesus experienced in the wilderness after being baptized by John the Baptist [Matthew 3:13-17]. As followers of Christ, Christians remember what Jesus gave to the world through his journey to the cross and resurrection. The greatest act of love for another the world will ever see and be forever impacted by it.

What is Community all about?

All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord's Supper ), and to prayer. A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders. And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had. They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need. They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord's Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity - all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.

Acts of the Apostles 2:42-47 NLT

After Jesus departure and in response to His command to wait on the promise of the Holy Spirit, the disciples began to experience the birth of a new community. In this community of believers they worked together, shared together and served each other. Imagine a community where no one was allowed to go without their needs met. From cash to accommodations the word shared had an entirely new meaning. From this passage in Acts 3 points of community standout.

Community is Reconciling - not your past but your present and future life is of importance and to be supported.Community is not about self Recognition "as each had need". Elitism had no place in this community of sharing.Community is about Relationships - some needs may be obvious, but in order to meet specific

needs there had to be sense of trust where individuals were not afraid to express it with one another.
