I Pledge Allegiance
(Lynn Casteel Harper)
“Lent is a time set apart to confront the questions we too easily put off in our regular routines and rhythms, questions of allegiance, loyalties, priorities.”
What do we stand, sit, or kneel for? In other words, whom do we follow?
Brothers and sisters, join in imitating me, and observe those who live according to the example you have in us. For many live as enemies of the cross of Christ; I have often told you of them, and now I tell you even with tears. Their end is destruction; their god is the belly; and their glory is in their shame; their minds are set on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven, and it is from there that we are expecting a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. He will transform the body of our humiliation that it may be conformed to the body of his glory, by the power that also enables him to make all things subject to himself. Therefore, my brothers and sisters, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm in the Lord in this way, my beloved.
