The challenges of the gospel are bold. The way of life demanded of us if we are to follow Jesus are not easy. And becoming a follower of Jesus requires that we are “all in”, that is, that we dedicate our lives in imitation of his.
Lent begins this Wednesday. Please don’t be a wimp. God wants so much for you. Don’t do the same old thing you have always done. Think about your life. Take a chance this Lent. Be courageous. Find what leads you away from God and remove it from your life. Take a chance and grow closer to the God who loves you.
