We are currently in the season of Lent. This is the time in which Christians prepare for the great celebration of Easter, when Jesus rose from the dead. In a world where we want things quickly, if not instantly, to spend 6 weeks waiting and preparing might seem a bit long-winded! Sometimes people give something up for Lent – maybe biscuits, or alcohol – and waiting 6 weeks before you have another biscuit or another drink can be a real test of will-power and our ability to wait and express self-control. Jesus expressed that willpower and self-control supremely when he chose to commit himself to doing God’s will, not his own,
The 6 weeks of lent can be a wonderful opportunity for us, not only to rein in our desire for the instant satisfaction of our needs or desires, but also to reflect on the immense love of God for us that we see in the fact that God entrusts his only Son to the world, taking the risk that he might be rejected and killed. More than that though, he raises him to everlasting life, and promises that wherever Jesus is, so we shall be too, forgiving us and welcoming us into new life with him.
With every blessing for your keeping of Lent,
