Lent begins next Wednesday on the day the church has traditionally called Ash Wednesday.  What is Lent all about?  And what is the significance of Ash Wednesday?  How should we observe this time on the church calendar?  Should we give up something?  

There are a lot of questions about Lent.  Check out our Got Questions? column next week, in which we will address the questions and share what you should know about this time leading up to Easter…and what you should do. (If you don’t get our emails, subscribe now to get the information in your inbox.)

Prepare for Lent

Now is the time to prepare for Lent.  Some will give something up, as has been the tradition, but I suggest that you consider taking something up.  

Make Lent a time of dedication to spending more time reading your Bible, reflecting on God’s teachings and revelation, and in prayer.  

40 Days Looking to Jesus

Make Lent a time of focusing on Jesus.  He is the reason for this season.  Think about who Jesus is and all that He did during His earthly ministry.  Then reflect upon all that Jesus does for you because you belong to Him.

I suggest that over the next forty days you consider the titles of Jesus found in His Word.  Here’s a list of 40 (there are many more).  Take a title each day leading up to Easter (Remember the 40 days do not include Sundays.)

Look up the Scripture for each title and ponder in your heart the gracious and generous work of our Lord Jesus Christ.
