Spiritual Springtime

"Yet whatever else it may be, Lent should never be morose - an annual ordeal during which we begrudgingly forgo a handful of pleasures. Instead, we ought to approach Lent as an opportunity, not a requirement. After all, it is meant to be the church's springtime, a time when, 
out of the darkness of sin's winter, a repentant, empowered people emerges." 

Let's approach this Lenten season as an opportunity to be refreshed. 
Let us humbly approach the throne of our Almighty God, 
repentant of our sin and seeking Him with our whole hearts. 
Let's TAKE JOY in this spiritual springtime as we are made NEW.

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. 
The old has passed away; behold, the new has come." 
- 2 Corinthians 5:17

May you be refreshed and renewed today!
