Humility That Brings Healing - Forgiveness
Posted by VCC on March 23, 2014 at 6:08 PM

This is the third Sunday of Lent, the 40-day time frame in preparation for the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. Lent is a time of refection, repentance and hope. During Lent, people fast and pray; humbling themselves before God as a sign of their devotion. But more than that, to truly renew their commitment to Jesus. We are reading from Isaiah 58 which is taking us through our entire 40-Day experience, recognizing that God is looking for a humility that brings healing. In our third humility challenge, we see that healing comes to us and others as we practice Forgiveness.

Humility That Brings Healing - Restitution
Posted by VCC on March 9, 2014 at 10:48 AM

This is the first Sunday of Lent which is the 40 day time frame in preparation for the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus. Lent started this past week on "Ash Wednesday" and is a time of refection, repentance and hope. So during Lent people fast and pray; humbling themselves before God as a sign of their devotion, but more than that, to truly renew their commitment to Jesus. Last week we introduced Isaiah 58, the chapter in the Bible that will take us through our entire 40 Day experience recognizing that God is looking for, in His People, a humility that brings healing, not just to themselves but to others. This morning we'll look at the first, of six, humility challenges God says brings healing. It's called Restitution.

Introduction to Lent - A Humility that Heals
Posted by VCC on March 3, 2014 at 4:51 PM

Today, we are kicking-off the most important season in the entire Christian calendar!  These next several weeks are known as Lent (the word simply means: "lengthening" as in the lengthening of days - happening now).  It is in this time frame we are in expectation of spring, when trees and flowers that were dormant, come back to life.  Lent is then that time frame that we are preparing for the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus - once dead and come back to life.  Lent starts on what is traditionally known as "Ash Wednesday" and initiates a 40-Day time frame, (commemorating Jesus' 40 Days in the dessert), a time of refection, repentance and hope. So, during Lent, people have always fasted, prayed and humbled themselves before God, as a sign of their devotion, but more than that, to truly renew their commitment to Jesus. This morning, we will introduce the chapter in the Bible that will take us through our entire 40 Days of Faith observance,  recognizing that God is looking for a humility that heals.
