I hope you are engaging this season of Lent with some level of sincere intent. If not, there is no time like the present to start. This is the time to press into God. We’re in a five-part series that will help as we move toward to Palm Sunday, Holy Week, and Easter. These hold the key to all God has done, is doing, and will do with the universe, His Creation, you, and all humanity. One the primary teachings of scripture, from beginning to end, is the foundational understanding that God calls out light from darkness. Lent and Easter are all about this. About our being brought into the freedom of the Light of God, out of the darkness of all that tries to suppress that light, but ultimately cannot.
1 John 1:5 (ESV) This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
John 2:8 (ESV) At the same time, it is a new commandment that I am writing to you, which is true in him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining.
