Christ is born. The church needs to do to get ready to follow Him into the world. We need to be reminded that it is God speaking to us and among us. We need to listen to God’s voice. We need to be ready to move when and where the Spirit says move. We need to answer God’s call in the varieties of contexts we and those we’ll prepare during Lent will experience it. We need to stay focused on our work and God’s call-­-­ the core work of discipling, not just fellowship or friendship. And we need to hear and help those we’ll accompany during Lent hear God’s call to go deeper, following Jesus where he leads.
