Todays meditation: ABSTAIN FROM WINE AND STRONG DRINK! When you dedicate yourself to the Lord as a Nazarene you must abstain from wine and strong drink. During Lent we desire to Follow the Lord more closely and imitate Him along His path of suffering and sacrifice. From Holy Thursday, where Jesus shared his last meal with His disciples, until His last moment on the cross, He abstained from wine. So to pick up our crosses and Follow Him, can be as simple as abstaining from wine during lent. All that we give up is in order to draw nearer to Him and to offer up as a sacrifice for ourselves and others. This is what a watchman in the gap does. Pray about what the Lord is calling you to abstain from this lent in order to dedicate yourself to the Lord. 🙏
