So there's this thing called Lent and if you haven't heard of it, or aren't sure what all it's about (that's okay, I didn't either), let me allow my girl Kelli to sum it up:
It's a time of drawing closer to God through the discipline of self-examination and repentance. It's a time that we imitate Jesus' withdrawal into the wilderness for 40 days. It's a time for us to examine our hearts and re-focus it on what matters - Jesus.
Isn't that something we, as Christ-followers, all should crave? More time with God, to be more like Jesus, etc. I've never participated in Lent before because honestly, I didn't feel the need to. I know I'm covered by God's grace and I know it's not my good works that will get me into Heaven one day (although good works are nice, don't discount that!).
When Kelli brought up the idea of this study for this Lent season, I really couldn't resist not joining in. Simply because I am so starved and hungry right now for the Lord so anything that is Gospel-based and biblically sound, I'm eating it up. With that being said, it starts today and I would really really like to invite anybody to join in! This isn't a paid advertisement or a way to boost anything. I just feel that we as believers need to come together more often to study and challenge each other.
