Our Lenten journey from Ash Wednesday to the cross continues. We're just about at the mid-way point. An opportunity to stop, look back, look forward, and take a breath. How is your journey going? Do you need a redirection?
Last week we heard Jesus say to Peter get behind me. It's a reminder that we are to follow Christ. We are not the ones leading the way.
As a reminder of the invitation to follow, last Sunday everyone received a cross (if you did not receive one, let me know). I pray that you use the cross over the next few weeks to center yourself in contemplation and prayer. Keep it close. Hold onto it knowing that it is a treasure chest that holds the most precious gift you have ever received.
I ask that you return these prayer laden crosses to Living Waters on Good Friday. Until then, let go of your worries - the cross is strong enough to hold all of them.
"He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross,a so that, free from sins, we might live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed." 1Pet. 2:24
