Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday. It is a period of time where we open the doors of our heart wider to understand our Lord Jesus more deeply. It’s a season of preparation for Easter Celebrations and receiving all that Jesus has for us through His death and resurrection.
We’re encouraging the people of newHope to prune something back from their lives, and replace that time and attention with God Himself. That might look like using that time and space to pray, study the Bible, go through a 40-day devotional resource, spend time in stillness and silence etc.
However you choose to participate in Lent, may it be a time where your heart grows more aware of God’s amazing love for you, and His power and presence in your everyday life.
