Lenten Reflections by Heidi Flanagan
Do you ever feel like the Lenten road to Calvary is just a trail of tears and misery that must be suffered through to get to the Hallelujahs of Easter? However, much is missed if we jump to the end of the story and only read the last chapter of the book. God has authored an epic spanning thousands of years just for you. As you embark on this scriptural journey, open your eyes and hearts to the story of a loving Father who chases you through the millennia to show you He loves you and will do and has done everything in His power to set you free. Lent is God’s invitation each year to leave this world behind and journey up His holy mountain. The journey is long, as any good adventure is. Over the next 40 days, our faith-filled trek will gain for us the strength to pick up our cross, shoulder to shoulder with Christ, and together boldly claim our seat at the greatest feast this side of heaven. Lent is not a time to dread!
Lov’In Lent helps us understand more deeply how God, from the beginning of time, has worked to save us and draw us to Himself. It enables us to approach Easter not with a sigh of relief, but a cry of true joy and appreciation for His victory over sin and death in our lives. It roots in us more deeply a longing for our Home in Heaven.
