Lantern

For the week of February 14th

Devotion - Fix my eyes on you!

Scripture: Colossians 3:15-21


Lent is a time when we are called to put our focus on Christ. The letter to the Colossians paints a magnificent picture for us: He is the image of the invisible God; He is before all things; in Him all things hold together; He is the head of the body, the church. In Him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell. He gives us peace. It should take years to truly understand this portrait of Christ, but Lent gives us time to delve more deeply into our understanding of who Christ is and what He means for our lives.


Song: Fix My Eyes On You, For King and Country

In our lives: Last night, I was driving with my daughter and one of her friends in the car and while we were on Hwy. 138, the car beside us suddenly jerked over in front of us. With quick braking, all was well. I turned the incident into an educational opportunity (they will be driving before we know it). “That is why it is so important to pay full attention to driving when you are driving.” “I know,” my daughter replied, “but people don’t really do that anymore.” Sadly, she is right. Is there anything we give our full and complete attention to these days? Lent is a time to give our full and complete attention to God. I offer to us all the formal invitation to a Lenten Discipline: I invite you, in the name of Christ, to observe a holy Lent, by self-examination and penitence, by prayer and fasting, by works of love, and by meditating on the Word of God.
