Ash Wednesday evening reflections…
“Remember, from dust you came, and to dust you shall return.”
Today the Lenten journey began. Lent is about considering our mortality and dependence on God who will one day judge the earth. It’s about numbering your days so you see the value of each moment. It’s about becoming less so God becomes greater in your life. It’s about following Jesus’ example of emptying yourself of all but love. It’s also about making room in your life for others. Don’t let the journey inward keep you from what Jesus called the will of the father. John 4 tells us Jesus at times went without food in order to share faith with people far from God. So as you draw nearer to God, remember how his heart beats for those far from him. Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in your life and mine!
Grace and Peace
