A Celebration of Discipline
1 Corinthians 9:24-27
Synopsis: This is the first Sunday of “Lent.” That may not mean much to you if you are not familiar with the church calendar. I want to spend our time together talking about the tradition and making suggestion for observing Lent as a Celebration of Discipline.
Using 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 as my text I want to make a few suggestions for you to consider: 1. Setting a Goal, 2. Developing a Plan, 3. Making a Commitment, 4. Accountability Group. Some questions that you need to ask: Doing this will make me a better …? Doing this will be a blessing to …?
Remember, we are moving toward Easter. Use these next forty days as a time of reflection, self examination, repentance and renewal. May the mark of Christ’s presence in your life stand out to those around you.
