Check out our “Get Started List for Lent” (below).

Lent begins a season of 40 days before Easter Sunday that are intended to be a time of reflection and preparation.  Much in the same way as Advent, Lent is to be a time of commitment, a time of making a commitment to look more or to keep looking unto the Author and Finisher of our faith. He has saved our souls. He has made us a new creation. And He has given us eternal life with Him.  

So how should we observe Lent?  It’s really quite simple.  It involves your eyes, your mind, and your heart:

  1. Eyes: Get focused, or stay focused, with your eyes on Jesus.  
  2. Mind: Think on Jesus.  Direct your thoughts guided by His will and ways.
  3. Heart: Surrender your desires to the will of God and live by the power of the Holy Spirit who will teach, direct, and guide you.

The answer is simple but the works are not. It takes our effort. 

  1. Pray:  Find your peace and rest in Jesus.
  2. Read and study the Bible: Renew your mind and receive wisdom to live godly.  
  3. Attend church and fellowship with other Christians: Engage in godly relationships.

And the key to doing all these things?  Be consistent!  Don’t just commit to these things during the 40 days of Lent.  Make them a part of your life.
