Lent is a time period to prepare for the resurrection of Christ.
Lent is the 40 days before Easter in which we live holy in order to remember the suffering and resurrection of Jesus he faced in order to save mankind.
Lent is the time to think about Jesus’ suffering on the cross and the time for us to promise to repent for our sins and live to be holy.
“Repentance” to human beings is a blessing of renewal. True repentance and renewal is derived from deeply thinking about Jesus.
This festival is derived from participating in the suffering of Christ through fasting prayer.
(Matthew 4:1-2) 1 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry.
