Today, as we celebrate Ash Wednesday, we pause to reflect on the 40 days that lead up to Easter. We begin Lent by asking God to show us the sins in our life and repenting of these sins.
So often I forget that God is willing to forgive my sins no matter what I do. When I fall off the wagon, I feel so guilty.
Today's meditation by Henri Nouwen points out that I cannot get stuck in my guilt. I need to fix my eyes on Jesus and what He did for me on Calvary.
By joining together tonight at church we can ask God for his forgiveness and begin walking together toward the cross and the resurrection on Easter Day.
