THE SEASON OF LENT I will follow Jesus!

3/1 - 4/15

"Be excLENT"

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.

“Lent” is a word that means spring.

It is very meaningful to consider the suffering and death of Jesus Christ for atonement during the life-giving season of spring.

This time of Lent is a day of ash. In the Old Testament, those who sinned had to sit on ash and weep in their sins. They sought the forgiveness of God. Likewise, the time of Lent is a day of ash. During this time period, it is the tradition of the church to refrain from vacation, weddings, engagements, and participate in the suffering of Christ.

The core of Lent is associated with the number 40.

There are many incidents in regards to 40 in the Bible, but they are all similar in terms of the time for “test, trial”.

During the time period of 40 days, God tests the mankind and puts them through trials in order to use them for His ministry.

“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.

Evangelize and help

(Titus 1:3, Acts 9:36, 1 Tim 5:10)
