God wants to build a relationship with you. He will not intimidate you so you’ll follow Him. He will not dominate you into submission. He will not terrify you into obedience. His brand of leadership is time, trust, and love. Open your heart to His leadership. Follow Him. He’s waiting for you.
For your further reading, our Gospel today is Matthew 23:1-12.
This Lent, come as you are and let God embrace you.
EMBRACED is a 40-day online Lenten devotional designed to journey with you as you walk with Jesus in His passion, death on the cross, until His resurrection. We enjoin the Catholic community in commemorating Lent in deep prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Through Embraced, we pray that you get to know Jesus more as you open your heart to the Word, His daily message, and stories from people who experienced Him as well.
