In the Gospel reading, we hear Jesus proclaim, "The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel." (Mark 1:15, NAB) We now have 40 days to repent and to deepen the practice of our belief in Christ's Good News.
When we were baptized, we were washed clean to begin a new life in Christ. Yet we continue to give in to temptations, and we sin, damaging our relationship with God and others. But "This is the time of fulfillment." We have a new opportunity to repent, to change, and to live more fully in Christ.
So what do you have to let go of in order to allow Christ to live more fully in you? What do you have to change to fall in love with Jesus more deeply?
