Lent, pt. 12

Did you go to church this morning?

I did and I loved it. God was speaking and I heard Him.

Our pastor read some verses from Mark 5. It was not, however, part of his message.

I feel like God was speaking to me through those verses. Stay tuned because the next couple of days will be the result of this morning’s encounter with God.


But as for this post, there is one word that I want to look at closely.

That word is change.

I have asked the question, “What is the purpose of Lent?”

Maybe you inquire about that as well.

Besides the story from Mark 5, I feel like God wants me to hit on that word, change.

Lent is useless unless it produces change.

Don’t bother fasting or praying if it won’t bring about change in you.

In chemistry, that change is called a catalyst.

I don’t want to try and tell you what to change. I just want to encourage you to change.

We are almost a third finished with Lent, take time to do something that will bring about the change that God wants in you.

That way, we can all avoid the Lent trap.

Good night.
