Its day one of lent and for the first time in my life I’ve seen a bunch of people walking around the city with black marks on their heads. This has been a very weird thing for me having grown up in a town and never experienced this before. When I got my hands on the calendar I was thinking to myself I would look stupid and would be persecuted for having it (I’d feel more holy if I was).
I was sat on a bus heading into the city when I saw many people with these crosses on their heads and it really got me thinking about the power of the cross. For some people their response will be its just a silly cross what good will it do, but today I was reminded what the cross means.
The cross is the centre of our faith. Jesus died on the cross for us which is the biggest act of love that we will ever experience.
Today God really spoke to me about moving in love. Everything I do should have love at the centre of my action. Its a powerful thought. Lets all try and live our life’s with love at the core.
Come back tomorrow for day 2
