You Know I ❤️ a Micro-Bible

This past Sunday John preached on how Jesus fought off the tempter using scripture. His sermon was  

 powerful as was the gift of a Bible to every congregant; a reminder for us all to employ Christ’s tactics against temptation. 

As we approach Easter and the cosmos-upending life and death of Christ it is good to pause. The Lenten Season is that brief measure. I am thrilled to embrace the more liturgical practice of Lent; the denial of something you super enjoy for 40 days. What?

That from which we abstain for these 40 days gives insight into what we treasure. I find that if nothing else Lent forces my soul into recalibration. As I miss my chocolate, glass of wine, sweets, TV, cursing, critical spirit, social media or shopping, I remind myself that nothing is worth as much to me as my Jesus. 

While I Jones for a frickin’ Chardonnay cupcake I saw an ad on TV for, could buy and Tweet about, I have my micro-Bible to focus on. How quickly God caulks our empty spaces if we will but create them.

  1. Another lovely post. Thanks, Jinny. I’m going to read some of John’s sermons. His photos are very nice as well.

    Love and Easter Blessings, Judy
