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.
