Day 17 – Scripture and Prayer for Lent

Brothers, join in imitating me, and keep your eyes on those who walk according to the example you have in us. For many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, walk as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things. – Philippians 3:17‭-‬19

Heavenly Father, Because of the cross I can choose not to be captivated by earthly thing. Because of the cross I can choose not to glory in the things that are shameful to You. Because of the cross I can choose not to be ruled by my appetites making my belly my god. Because of Your work in me I am a friend of the cross. I embrace what it stands for and I love the Savior who hung there for me. In His name. Amen
