What’s captured you? Has something gotten a hold of you that won’t let go? Abraham’s call, like that of many people in the Bible, begins with an invitation to let go, to say goodbye to what’s known and to be open to what God has in store. Lent is a time for all of us to practice letting go, saying goodbye to what we know and being open to God’s movement in our life. Just like the seasons in nature create rhythms of life, so do seasons create patterns for God’s people, reminding them what it is to be a follower of Jesus. So, in this season of Lent, what is God asking you to let go of, say goodbye to or be open to? Can you hear God calling?
The LORD had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.”
– Genesis 12:1 NIV
