💜 WHAT IS LENT? 💜
Lent is an important season to Christians because we are given special opportunities to focus our attention on our Redeemer, Jesus Christ and what he has done for us. Jesus saved us by being our perfect substitute in life (Romans 5:19) and our innocent substitute in death (2 Corinthians 5:21). Lent furnishes opportunities to marvel at the forgiving, sacrificial love of God (Isaiah 53). The main focus of Lent is not what we give up for God. It is what God gave up for us on the cross, his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ (John 3:16).
