God did not call us to brokenness, but to wholeness. God did not call us to isolation, but to community with each other in the care of our loving Savior. Christ came so that all might have life – abundant life – life lived to its fullest.
What if we thought of our entrance into the season of Lent, as the gate into 40 days of living in God’s pasture? Imagine 40 days of holiness and wholeness in a community of love. Imagine what life in God’s pasture looks like, feels like for you. Imagine what it would mean to live life fully.
Let your imaginings be your prayer today – ask God to help you to enter through the gate and find pasture as we move into this season together.
