Reflection of the week
Posted in Faith
My Lenten journey continues as I take my instructions from the Word of God.
“If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” – Mark 8: 34
I seem to be going through the motions, keeping Lent by denying myself of little pleasures and favourite indulgences. Going without one caffeine hit is hardly sacrificial. I can barely resist my mid-morning nibbles, but it's not enough. If I am to follow the instruction of Jesus, this Lenten journey requires my serious attention to self-denial.
With or without the chocolate bar, I will practice my Lenten discipline with the giving of myself in some costly service to another.
Thank you, Lord, for giving your all for me at the end of your own journey, which was really just the beginning. Amen.
