First Week of Lent: Into the Wilderness
Jesus went into the wilderness for 40 days and was tempted. We enter this 40 day season of Lent, to stand with Jesus, to prepare our hearts, to realize we are sinners in need of a Savior.
This week, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame and has sat down at the right hand of God. For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. -Hebrews 12:1-3
How is your Lenten fast going? Have you already failed? Confess, and press in to Jesus. He is able to keep you from falling.
