’Tis the Season to REPENT!
Never forget we are all sinners. We all need to REPENT! Lent is a great opportunity to make REPENTANCE! the focus of our Spiritual life during a season of fasting and self-denial.
Hello Readers, hope all’s well. Lent starts today, so today I have a special post to start off this season of REPENTANCE!
Please also be sure to check out my last post on the Spiritual practice of fasting. The season of Lent is a time when fasting takes center stage in our Spiritual life.
Many denominations observe the season of Lent. Forty-six days of prayer, fasting, and REPENTANCE! that ends on Easter. Whether your denomination observes Lent or not, it is critically important to observe some season of REPENTANCE! every year. Because we are all sinners, and we all need to REPENT!
The season of Lent, the lead-up to Easter, is a time for reflecting on our sins and thanking God for the sacrifice of His Son Jesus on the Cross. This is the time to confess our sins and thank God for His Merciful Forgiveness. In other words, now is the time to reflect on the reason for the Easter season. Although confessing our sins is something we should do regularly, we must not pass up the chance Lent presents to focus on REPENTANCE!
And it starts today. So let’s start the Lenten season off right and think about why we fast, pray, avoid entertainments, and so on. Let’s start the season off thinking about why we observe this season at all.
All Are Sinners, Saved by Grace ONLY
The reason for the season of Lent is all about Jesus and His sacrifice for us on the Cross. The Forgiveness of our sins through our belief in Him and what He did for us.
Understanding and believing in Jesus’ sacrifice for us, and the Spiritual significance of it, is the core of our Christian Faith. Why do we believe in Jesus? What did He do for us? We need to understand those answers, because we need to understand why we need Jesus. If we had no need for Jesus, we would have no need to be Christian. But we know that’s not the way…
