"Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy hill.” (Joel 2:1a, NIV)
Often we begin our Lenten journey by hearing these words, and just as Joel sounded the alarm thousands of years ago, the alarm is sounded once again.
With each season of Lent we are called to “sound the alarm” and examine our lives and to ask ourselves are we living lives of Christ in the world around us? If not, we are to make the necessary changes so our lives are in line with what Christ desires.
However, what do we so often do when Ash Wednesday and Lent rolls around? Like an alarm clock, we hit the snooze, and we often ignore God’s call to us. If we don’t ignore the alarm, then we in essence get up half-heartedly and only go through the motions of change. For example, instead of making the difficult changes in our lives, we instead choose to make changes that seem more like New Year’s resolutions.
My friends, this year I am challenging us to make real changes in our lives. Whether these changes mean taking on what we claimed in our baptismal vows and finally living them out, or make other changes in things like our language, our lack of humility, etc. However, let us make real changes so that our lives become more in tune with what Christ desires of us.
Enjoy your week!
