As many of you know, Lent is now upon us. Over the years when leading people to Christ, I have been asked what Lent is and should we observe it?
Over the next 40 days, believers from around the world will be making decisions to say no to certain things in their lives in order to fast and sacrifice to obtain a deeper relationship with God.
This coming Sunday, we will begin our new Lent sermon series. However, it will be different than any way you have heard it communicated in the past. Over the next few weeks, we will be speaking about “Just Say YES!”. As we lead up to Easter Sunday, let's keep in mind the death, burial, and resurrection is a gift from God himself to those who chose to believe on His risen son! We can access this most amazing gift from Heaven but simply saying YES during this season of Lent! By simply saying YES, we automatically give up things that will hinder our relationship with God by default.
We are simply going to take the acronym "YES" and talk about the importance of yielding our lives to the will of God for our lives. I can't wait to see the growth that we will have as we take a deeper walk with knowing who God is and what he has for our lives during this season.
