Are You Ready to Return to God?
The 40 days of Lent are a time for both new and longtime Christians to hear God's call to return with all our hearts, Do you need a new beginning, to return to God? One that refreshes God’s call in your life? It begins with Ash Wednesday and Sunday and continues through the next 40 days of our own turning around in repentance, reconciliation with God, and connecting to one another. And then preparing to publicly proclaim again our belief in the crucified and risen Christ. Every year, this is the time to revisit and return to the beginnings of our Christian journey of freedom and new life. God pursues us and says to each one of us, “It is time to return to Me with all your heart.” But will we?
We pursue happiness, fame, fortune, and success. When we begin to pursue greater meaning in our lives, we discover a God who loves us is pursuing us. How can we trust a love so encompassing? How can we accept God’s love and love God back? That is what we are exploring as we start our journey once again towards Easter and celebrate the Resurrection.
