Keller: Begin Lenten Season in great way
Published 12:01 am Wednesday, March 6, 2019
Today (Ash Wednesday), many churches will observe Lent, a 40-day period before Easter Sunday.
It’s a time people fast and do penance in preparation for the Resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
He wants you to know that He loves you and desires to have a relationship with you full of joy and purpose.
According to a devotional, “The Word For You Today,” the following is why you need Jesus in your life:
BECAUSE YOU HAVE A PAST:
You can’t go back, but He can. The Bible says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8)
He can walk into those places of sin and failure, wipe the slate clean, and give you a new beginning.
BECAUSE YOU NEED A FRIEND:
Jesus knows the worst about you, yet He believes the best.
Because He sees you not as you are, but as you will be when He gets through with you. What a friend!
BECAUSE HE HOLDS THE FUTURE:
Who else are you going to trust?
In His hands you are safe and secure – today, tomorrow and for all eternity.
His Word says, “For I know the plans I have for you…plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen.” (Jeremiah 29: 11-12)
To begin a personal relationship with Jesus today, pray this prayer:
“Lord Jesus, I invite You into my life. I believe You died for me and that Your blood pays for my sins and provides me with the gift of eternal life. By faith I receive that gift, and I acknowledge You as my Lord and Savior. Amen.”
What a great way to begin the Lenten Season!
