Dear Mosaic Family,
Lent is a time of solemn preparation for commemorating the death of Jesus Christ on Good Friday and celebrating His resurrection on Easter Sunday. Traditionally, Lent is a time for intentional repentance, prayer, and fasting.
During Lent this year, in preparation for Good Friday and Easter, we are devoting four weeks to an in-depth study of sin. Why? Because without a deep understanding of the bleakness of our sin, we cannot understand the profound brilliance of God's grace. We need to study sin as much as we study grace, because you cannot understand either without understanding both. Moreover, without a robust understanding of sin, you cannot understand God, the world, or even yourself.
The Holy Scriptures describe sin with an array of images: missing the target, wandering from the path, straying from the fold; sin is a hard heart and a stiff neck; sin is blindness and deafness; sin is overstepping of a line and the failure to reach it; sin is both transgression and shortcoming. In our four week series, as we diagnose the sin in our hearts, we will look at the four most pronounced iterations of sin in our culture:
3/23 = Sin as Predator
3/31 = Sin as Self-Deceit
4/7 = Sin as Adultery
4/14 = Sin as Self-Righteousness
Join us tomorrow as we study Genesis 4, and consider Sin as Predator.
Praying for you!
