I woke up this morning so excited that Lent Season starts today! Lent is a time when many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline. The purpose of Lent is to set aside time for reflection on JESUS-HIS suffering, HIS sacrifice, HIS life, death, burial and resurrection.
As you are deciding what you are going to fast from for the next 40 days remember that you are offering up a gift of sacrifice unto GOD. Ask yourself if the gift that you offering to GOD is going to be pleasing to HIM. GOD is looking for a spiritual sacrifice during this time and on 7 April HE wants you to be spiritually stronger than you were today when you started Lent Season.
When I think about all that GOD has sacrificed for me I am excited about this season of fasting and prayer as it leads up to Resurrection Sunday.
