6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with,[a] that we should no longer be slaves to sin—
“…Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.” (Matt. 16: 24-25)
The season of Lent is a time of reflection, repentance, self-denial, spiritual growth, and growing closer to God. Lent is about Jesus journey to the cross and picking up our cross and following him. It is my prayer that the following scriptures will be a source of empowerment.
Blessings and Peace,
