Ecclesiastes 3:20 All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return.
DUST – worthless particles of matter into which something disintegrates.
On Ash Wednesday, I was reminded once again that we are made from dust, and when we die, we become dust again…..
God took worthless matter and created me and you and all of his children. There is nothing our God can not do. His miracles are unfathomable. During this season of Lent, between Ash Wednesday and Easter, Jesus is on his journey to the cross. His body will return to dust in just six short weeks. Through Jesus’ dust, God’s greatest miracle is seen!
During this season of Lent, how will you draw near to Jesus as he journeys to the cross? How will you incorporate the disciplines of Lent – repentance, fasting, prayer and works of love – into your life? Whatever you choose, choose to take the 40 day journey with Jesus.
