Dallas Willard does not pull punches when he writes that “the prospering of God’s cause on earth depends upon his people thinking well.” Today, he encourages us to eschew the crooked path of ineffective deliberation and instead order and engage our thoughts to serve God well.
A virtuous life in Christ will bear good fruit, and Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s words and life have borne inspiration, conviction, and renewed commitment in the hearts of many Christians who have taken his model of integrity to heart. As we prepare for Lent, he is a helpful reminder of joy in the journey.
Lent is the season of reflection and repentance, yes. But it is also a season of renewal and rebirth as the earth awakens all around us. We are invited today to spring or, at least, step into a more meaningful Lent this year with Renovaré’s two Lenten devotionals: Less is More and Engage!.
Renovaré was founded by Celebration of Discipline author Richard Foster to help people pursue renewal in Christ through relationships, retreats, and print and online resources. Learn more >
