Let Jesus, not the world, set the priorities of your heart in this Lenten season.Toward the Cross
challenges each of us to answer the question that lies at the heart of discipleship, at the heart of our priorities:
Is following Jesus the most important thing to you?
Is it your priority?
When you follow Jesus, how does it change the way you think, speak, and act?
Jesus told would-be followers to count the cost. The chapters and daily readings in this book help you do that by developing a disciple’s perspective on yourself, others, and things. They encourage you to let go of the past, guilt, and things that weigh you down and cling tightly to Christ in genuine discipleship.
This seven-week study guides you through Lent and Easter, helping you explore qualities and characteristics of Christian discipleship that lead you to claim Jesus as your highest priority. Each week includes a group session based on the traditional Gospel texts with supporting daily readings for Ash Wednesday through Easter Monday. Group Sessions have questions to spark discussion as you strengthen your commitment to making Jesus your priority during the Lenten season, Easter, and beyond.
