Giving Up for Lent
Ever given something up for 40 days to observe Lent? Lent officially began on February 13, 2013 and goes through Saturday March 30. It isn’t too late to have a mini-Lent. Give up something for the next five weeks or give up 5 things, 1 each week, for the next 5. I am starting this week with no internet. If you choose to join in, you can share next week what you gave up and what the Lord revealed to you during the week.
I don’t want to preach sermons about giving up the internet or coffee, but I am going to speak on the theme of giving up for lent between now and Easter. The first message is Give up your righteousness.
