How quickly this season has come upon us. Lent.
Today, begins a new journey, we are entering into the wilderness with Christ for the next 40 days. We are letting the things of this world fall away so our souls can fall in love with God. God only comes to fill the empty places and kenosis is necessary- to empty the soul to know the filling of god.
Lent is showing me how broken and depraved I am. How incapable I am in the flesh, how in bondage I am. I can literally do nothing.
And then there is Jesus. Jesus with the crown of thorns. Jesus is bent low, carrying my dirty, rotten mess. Grace is doing what I cannot do, and I cannot ascend to God but He will descend to me.
Jesus will have to do everything.
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8,9
