Trust and Obey
Lent is a time for our spiritual preparation of following in Jesus’ footsteps. Jesus went into Jerusalem to offer His life as a sacrifice for the world. To be followers of Jesus, we must die too. We die to our idols, our self-absorbed lives. For disciples of Christ, there is a flow of life: breathing in, and then breathing out the love we have for Christ. Breathing in is trusting and resting in the gospel of grace, and the love Christ has for us. We study the Scriptures, giving us daily reminders of his loving acts, grace and provision. Out of this rest and trust, comes our breathing out - we love Him back by obeying His commands.
