The first of Martin Luther’s 95 theses states, “When our Lord and Master Jesus Christ said, ‘Repent,’ he willed the entire life of believers to be one of repentance.” And to repent — in reality, means to change — change your mind, change your direction, turn around. I love the word “turn” because it makes repentance into something we do with our whole self — body, mind and spirit.
Our whole life as believers is about turning — both turning away from sin, and turning toward God. And this happens in so many ways in our lives. Especially during Lent, we re-commit ourselves to this act of “turning” — and look for opportunities to turn towards God as we turn away from all that keeps us from God.
During these weeks of Lent, we will consider what it means to turn away,
and what it means to turn toward God.
