Today we begin the journey. It’s a journey that begins each year and takes us on a journey from wilderness to cross. We start with the dust of our creation and wind our way with Jesus to Jerusalem where we see, afresh, the depth of our sin and the height of His love.
And, while you can skip ahead – it’s usually best to take the journey step by step.
As you begin, think about fasting from something. It doesn’t really matter what you give up, because whatever you give up, you’ll crave. Why is that? It’s because our hearts and appetites cling to the things of this world as if we are orphans fighting for each scrap.
And that’s the most important part of the journey. When you give something up, you have an opportunity to turn back to the Father who is standing right there behind you ready to catch you. Lent, at it’s most basic, is a Gospel reminder of how we lose our identity into a million lesser things… but through fasting and repentance… can find that Jesus is better than all of them combined.
You might even find that the journey sweeps you into His arms!
Join us today at 12:15 for a simple Ash Wed. service or 6:00 for a blended service!
