Lent, Day 14

Did you give up or take on something for Lent?  Have you already messed up or missed a day?  Engaging in a Lenten discipline can be a rewarding act of faith for some or an incredible reminder of our shortcomings for others.  A friend and mentor of mine, Lisa Nicholas Hickman, said this about discipline:

Eugene Peterson says, “Disciplines are overrated. Discipline is a word that should be struck from our theological lexicon.” Some might hear his words as dismissive for those of us seeking to be disciplined disciples of Christ. But others might nudge from these words the deepest of truths: Christ is Lord and Savior, not us. My failure helps me to follow the one who is discipline, the one who is disciplined, the one who calls us to follow him—not our charts, plots or ploys. We are saved by grace, not by our own doings or undoings.

The full article can be found here and is really wonderful.  I encourage you to read it and see what grace God has in mind for you.
