Lent... Act, Love, Walk

 Lent ...
Waiting... for,
The Kingdom Of God. 
His death and resurrection.

 "Once, on being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed,  nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in your midst.”
Luke 17:20-21 

It is within us.... The Kingdom Of God.
Through transformation.

During Lent, 
we wait, we ponder death, and life.
We can get lost in that...

Maybe we should remember that it an opportunity to...
"Feed My Sheep"
as Jesus told Peter Three times. 

Micah 6:8 sums it up...
"He has shown you, O man, what is good.
    And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
    and to walk humbly with your God."

Maybe Lent is about humbling ourselves before God.
Preparing our hearts,
for His sacrifice,
taking His word literally...
and feeding His Sheep. 

Act justly, 
love mercy,
walk humbly.

How do you practice Lent?
