As we prepare to celebrate Lent and follow His footsteps to the cross, I realize the power which my Jesus displays in my life.
Weak-willed. Weak in spirit? Sometimes I feel hopeless, but I know that I have a God that is not weak.
Picture more than 2,000 years ago when Christ went into the desert and was tempted by Satan. Hungry and hot, he withstood temptations. Then, knowing what his future held, He started His ministry to bring good news to the lost and Gentiles.
Lent is not a season for the weak. It is a time to mark Christ’s final days.
I love this scripture that sums up the Lent season:
Philippians 3:10-11 – “I want to know Christ, yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participate in his sufferings,
becoming like him in death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.
As a Protestant Evangelical Christian, I have never observed Lent. I know very little about it; so I am studying for the first season of Lent with my friend and fellow blogger, Susan Chamberlain Shipe, penned a special study for Lent called: 40 Days of Lent: The People, Places, and Events Surrounding the Passion. (Affiliate link). I highly recommend this study if you are like me and just deciding to follow Lent. My goal is to overcome those sins that hinder me and make me weak in my walk with Christ.
I have studied the first two chapters in preparation for Lent which kicks off this year on Wednesday, March 1.
Are you celebrating Lent this year? Do you have special devotionals that you want to share as we start this holiest of seasons? We hope you will join us the #LMMLinkup and share!
