Why Should I Lent?
is a forty day season from Ash Wednesday
to Holy Saturday
(the day before Easter
). During the Lenten season Christians take time to focus on removing (fasting) anything that may be distracting them or hindering their relationship with the Lord. It can be an incredible time of purification, repentance, renewal, simple living, and overall joy
when we truly lean into what God wants us to do. It is also a time to remember Jesus' sacrifice for us and identify with his 40 days in the desert during which time he was tempted by Satan. I encourage you to pray and decide what you will fast as you seek to grow closer to the Lord Jesus Christ.
