Christians use this time to seek to grow in love and hope as Christ’s disciples. What makes that happen for you? It could be making a commitment to Sunday worship, daily Bible reading and prayer, weekly study group, or service to others.
Take up something that draws you closer to Christ. See our Website Next Steps section for devotional suggestions. Or borrow an NT Wright commentary in Fellowship Hall to read through a book of the New Testament with a few short pages of commentary.
Or give up something that is drawing you away from Christ. Give up worry, fear, hating or judging others, spending too much, nursing rather than dealing with anger, inability to forgive self or others, any addiction – we all have addictions – that keeps you from being your best.
