Sermon Series: February & March
Declutter Our Lives
“At once the Spirit forced Jesus out into the wilderness. He was in the wil-derness for forty days, facing temptation. He was among the wild animals, and the angels took care of him.” Mark 1:12-13
In the Bible, people go to the wilderness to find and be with God. The wil-derness is one of those other places in our lives. None of our physical or emotional stuff is there. It is just you, nature, and God.
During the season of Lent, we remember when Jesus was tempted in the desert. Many people decide to give something up for Lent as a way of em-bodying the way Jesus was able to resist temptation. The typical Lenten “give-ups” are things like chocolate, sugar, fatty foods, meat, wine and other indulgences. We often wonder if our actions are more for ourselves instead of God.
What if we decided to take an active role this Lent? What if we were intent on removing the things in our lives that further us from God? Things like our clutter and our overscheduled calendars.
