Lay Down & Take Up

Jesus wants something from us. But it doesn’t have to do with following rules, keeping up appearances, or trying harder. In the Sermon on the Mount, He invites His listeners to lay down those things that are hindering our love for Jesus and our ability to love other people. In its place, He invites us to set our eyes on the eternal, to come along with Him on a journey to a soul that is light, free, and radically in love with God. This Lent, explore freedom and dependence as we lay down the weight of this world and take up new life in Jesus.
