For the Lenten season, Hebrews4’s The Double Edge will be publishing a devotional series crafted from the very real and deep experiences of 26 of our favorite writers.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of what is called the Lenten Season, this season stretches from Ash Wednesday until Easter Sunday. During the season of Lent we “give up” certain things, in a sense we put them to death. The forty days (not counting Sundays) from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday are representative of Jesus’ forty days in the wilderness. During this forty days we, in a sense, journey to the cross with Christ preparing to die with Him and then be raised to life with Him on Easter Sunday. So from Ash Wednesday until Good Friday we are dying to self and the world as we learn and practice complete surrender unto Christ.
Over the course of the 40 days of Lent we will be featuring a different writer sharing their reflections on Lent. These writers are walking a “Path of Death” that calls them to look within and contemplate how they are to die to self so that they may live the life that Christ has called each of them to. Please join us as a community as we gaze into the thoughts and lives of each of these writers; As they share with us their killing off of the flesh and looking ahead to the things of Christ during this peregrination.
