Isaiah 58:1-9, Ps 51, Matthew 9:14-15

Love Lent

There is a time to fast and repent and a time to feast and rejoice. Jesus wants us to understand the need for both times – that we need to empty ourselves of our excesses, our old sorrows and sins – and offer fresh minds and hearts to him to fill with his goodness.

Thank you, Lord, for your wisdom in pointing out the need to recreate ourselves for you. May this time of Lent for each of us be of great spiritual sacrifice and cleansing so we are worthy to be one with you throughout your time of trial.
