Lent 2014 “Called to Holiness” Message Series

Lent, the forty days of preparation between Ash Wednesday and Easter, is a Call to Holiness. Just as Jesus spent forty days fasting in the desert before the beginning of his public ministry, believers are invited during Lent to prepare for Holy Week through forty days of more intentional prayer, fasting, repentance, almsgiving, and self-denial. Spiritual disciplines are given to us as means of grace. They are “exercises unto godliness” that enable us to receive more of the life and power God offers to us through Christ. They prepare us for increasingly more interaction with the powers of the living Christ and his Kingdom. Throughout the Season of Lent we will be focusing on how we might better respond as we are Called to Holiness.
