Good morning, 

Lent is a period of humble gratitude. As disciples of Christ, we are called to dedicate ourselves to prayer and scripture and consider the enormity of the gift Jesus gave us by taking our sins upon himself. We will draw closer to God as we prepare to celebrate Christ's resurrection at Easter. A Godly attitude tells the world how we respond to what life gives us. A Godly perspective comes because you decide to follow God. 

The tragedy of our modern world today is that many people, including many Christians, have become so consumed with negativity that their collective witness is increasingly ungodly. By faith, we can bring joy in a world tainted by negativity, victim mentality, resentment, revenge, anger, and other things that are not of God. 

Now is the time for Christians to make a real difference for God. Now is the time to pray for strength to live a life that practices righteousness and evidence of the new birth from above. “Be not conformed to this world “does not imply that we should head for the nearest cave and become hermits, but that we are no longer thinking, acting, and planning in the same ways that the unsaved do. It is not so much about changing the world but changing ourselves. The Apostle Paul in Romans 15:5 said may the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had,

Finally, I would like to leave you with this thought for meditation; “The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up.” - John C. Maxwell 

Be Blessed, 

Pastor Kevin L. Bullock, Sr.
