Many of us give up certain things for the forty days of Lent, and doing so can be very beneficial. As we take time for self -reflection and exercise moderation during Lent, let us all pause to consider what God asks us to give up for MORE than forty days. Our sermon series will help us discover what it means to be a Christ-follower as we give up control, expectations, superiority, enemies, popularity, and our lives. As we travel these forty days with Christ to the cross, let us too consider what we need to give up for Lent and forever.
