"For where your treasure is, there also will be your heart." (Matthew 6:21)
The Journey of Sacrifice!
Lent is a penitent season, even more so than Advent. The 40 days are set aside for us to really examine areas of recurring sin in our lives. Sins that prevent us from being conformed to God's Will. Lent is a time when Christians separate from the world; when we find out our faith is not just a feel-good, self-help religion but one that answers the deepest questions of life and eternity.
This is potentially the most exhilarating time in the life of our faith! To think that we could enter into a 40 day period when we would call on the Lord several times a day because we cannot make it without Him! How close could we potentially be at the end!!! Those who journey through the Lenten season with a spirit of committed sacrifice will awaken on Resurrection Sunday with an increased appreciation for who God is and what He has done for us. And the joy of Resurrection, as well as the promises of eternity, will not be soon forgotten.
Everyone who is willing to truly give themselves up to Christ for Lent can experience a wonderfully close relationship with Him. The purpose of Lent is to empty ourselves so we may be filled with the Holy Spirit.
The actual purpose behind the sacrifice is to help us connect with the suffering of Jesus. When we sacrifice something serious it may not seem so trying in light of what Jesus endured.
There is a secret that few people know about sacrifice. Lent is a time for us to think about sacrifice and what it can do to us as a person. When we give ourselves fully to God during Lent, we will be amazed at the transformation that occurs. There's something wonderful waiting to happen to us during this Lenten Season
