The Lenten Journey 2018: Are You Willing?

The Lenten Journey 2018

As we continue enter in this Lenten season, let us decide that our lives will have eternal significance. Let us participate with God in the ongoing renewal of creation my living prophetically. In the face of violence, hatred and poverty, we are called to live prophetically. The question we must ask this season is: Are you willing to be prophetic?

Are you willing to speak truth to power?

Are you willing to set aside the pursuit of comfort?

Are you willing to expose yourself to the scrutiny of a hostile public?

Are you willing to stand in opposition to those with more money, more resources, and more time and often more hate than you?

Are you willing to go even if you have to go by yourself?

Are you willing to discipline yourself?

Are you willing to take the time and made the effort to intentionally cultivate your spiritual life?

Are you willing to spend a great deal of time in prayer?

Are you willing to lose sleep?

Are you willing to study, to read, to write, to study, to read, to write, to study, to read, to write?

Are you willing to allow the Word of God to work on you? Are you willing to allow the Word of God to work on you? Are you willing to allow the Word of God to work on you?

Are you willing to give up long held beliefs, practices and even prejudices to allow the Word of God to cut you and heal you?

Are you willing to expose your heart to this two-edged sword to give up your druthers and preferences to stop knowing and begin listening and learning to confront your own stuff?

Are you willing to let the Word of God shape YOU?

Are you willing to live a life of sacrifice to be lonely to be judged, maligned, misunderstood, dreaded, unappreciated, feared to practice the Presence of God?

Are you willing to lay your head in the bosom of the Father and learn the beating of His heart?

Are you then willing to speak it when the world is out of step with the Father’s heartbeat?

Let us use thus Lenten season to prepare ourselves for prophetic living.
