PoC-9 1st Thursday of Lent: The Power of the Cross Lenten Meditation

The Cross of Christ Teaches Us. . .How to Trust and Give Thanks

The-CrossSteps to Take as You Follow Christ

Ask—What do I need from God to follow Jesus more closely?

Seek—As the day progresses, when you find yourself impatient, unloving, judgmental, lustful, or anything that strikes you as against the gospel of Jesus, ask God for the gift that will help you to be more like Christ.

Knock—Meditate on James 1:17.

Every good endowment and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.

Spend some time giving thanks to God for how he has led you, even “through the valley of the shadow of death” to this moment.

Transform Your Life—Try to make it a practice to “ask, seek, and knock” in your relationship with God. See that relationship as something that happens with every breath you take. Speak to God often!
