Today is the First Sunday of Lent. Lent is a time of preparation for Easter and is also a time where we can take a good look at our own lives. Doing things like this gives us a lot of opportunities but certainly among them is the ability to make better choices. When we confront the “wild things” in our lives, we are forced to evaluate our situation. Jesus spent 40 days in the wilderness (this is why Lent is 40 days not including Sundays – it reminds us of his temptation) and I’m sure he spent some time pondering what He was undertaking. We’ll be talking about that today as we take a look at Mark 1:9-15.
Also tonight we will begin a new study by Adam Hamilton called “Revival.” This is a study where we will look at what it means to be a Wesleyan Christian. John Wesley’s thoughts about God is distinctive in many ways and we will be looking at that in addition to taking video tours of the places where John and Charles Wesley began their ministry. I hope you will consider joining us for this study which promises to be wonderful.
Come as you are and bring someone with you. I would love to have you with us today at Oak Grove!
