at the Vineyard

The 40 days of the Lenten Season is an invitation to journey like Jesus did in His 40 days of temptation in the wilderness. In many ways, Jesus’ wilderness time was a redemptive “redo” of the 40 years that the people of Israel spent in the wilderness. He faithfully endured temptation, danger, and fasting in order to model something for us. He was giving us an example of how to faithfully navigate the vicissitudes of life. In Lent, as we engage in a fast or discipline of some kind, we are following “in His steps.” (1 Peter 2:21)  - Dr. Ted Wueste

Reading Plan for Lent

One of the ways we can connect with God is through a prayerful process of reading Scripture:
Read: First read through the scripture passage
Reflect: Reflect on the passage's meaning. Are there any phrases that stick out to you or resonate with you?
Respond: Respond by turning the passage into a prayer, or dialogue with the Lord regarding it (speak to God and listen to what He might be saying to you through it).
Rest: Then take a moment, pause quietly, and rest in God’s presence.

You'll notice that these passages are not long. They are an opportunity to briefly pause in our schedules to be attentive to the Lord working in our hearts.
