What habits pull us away from the presence of God? What practices draw us closer?
It is common to remove something from our lives leading up to Easter. What if we filled that space with something that brings life and provides an opportunity to hear from Jesus? Over this Lenten season, we invite you to not only Abstain, but to also Engage. For example, abstain from TV and fill that space with prayer. Abstain from buying coffee. Engage in tithing. We hope that this daily devotional will be a useful tool as you prepare for the death and resurrection of Christ.
To put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.
