Is the emphasis for this season of Lent the rending of our hearts? Or is it claiming the promise? The truth is, we need both: the rending and the claiming. We need to tear out the things that are in the way of truly following Christ, which is not an easy or a simple process. Nor is it something that we can do once and then forget it. It is a constant call for us to “lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely” (Heb 12:1). But then we also need to lean into the promise of the kingdom. We need to claim the life that Christ describes and lives out before us, to embrace the joy of the life of faith.
