The Power of the Cross: First Week of Lent, Wednesday - The Cross of Christ Teaches Us About Repentance

Ask — Where do I need to repent most in my life?

Seek — Monitor your thoughts and hold them up against the standard of the gospel. Do your love and forgiveness have limitations or conditions? Ask the Lord to teach you true repentance of mind and heart.

Knock — Meditate on 1 Corinthians 1:22-24. How might you experience the power and wisdom of God in the cross by embracing the gospel more completely?

Transform Your Life — Make a daily examination of conscience, paying special attention to your attitudes throughout the day, and asking the Holy Spirit to make you more like Christ.
