This is the 2nd week of Lent. My question to myself and to us is “where are we putting Christ into our lives to fill the space of the things we are giving up for this season? How are you hearing from God and what is He saying?” I truly believe that this is a time that God desires to speak and desires to share His heart with us. He longs for our ear and our hearts to be in tune with his.
This season we are praying that Jesus will burn in us His passion for Justice. There is injustice all around us, both in our own neighborhoods and across the world. This, even though it is getting more and more popular to ‘do justice’ is still and always will be on the front of God’s mind and heart. Since this is so, what is he saying to us in regards to our next steps of ‘doing justice?’ He is speaking, we just need to take time this season to stop and listen to what he is saying.
He has shown you and me what is good. And what does the Lord require of us? To do justice, to love mercy and to walk humbly with Him. As you journey through Lent this season continue to ask Jesus what it looks like for you to do justice and what your next step is. You can write your next steps in here as we journey together.
